Recent Cyber Events: Considerations for Military and National Security Decision Makers

This recurring report is the collaborative view of NATO CCDCOE researchers highlighting the potential effects of current events and developments in cyberspace on armed forces, national security, and critical infrastructure, based on publicly available information. It does not set out to be exhaustive. While the authors have made every effort to describe events from a perspective relevant to NATO and partner nations, there may be national and regional differences which this paper does not address.

The authors of this paper are independent researchers at the NATO CCDCOE; they do not represent NATO, nor does this paper reflect NATO’s position. The aim of the paper is not to replace information about vulnerabilities and incidents provided by CSIRTs and providers of CIS products and services.

The twelfth installment in this cyber events series focuses on a global ransomware attack against Coop, one of the major supermarket chains in Sweden, through software from Kaseya. The report also highlights the Pegasus spyware controversy, which revealed the extent to which controversial spyware technologies are being used to digitally surveillance targets across the globe. The report also covers a recent cyberattack against South African ports, North Korea hacking South Korea’s Nuclear Institute and Aerospace Company and reactions to China’s compromise of Microsoft Exchange.
