- Multiple state-sponsored cyber-espionage campaigns, including phishing, wiping, and ransomware, as well as campaigns facilitated by financially motivated threat actors.
- New strains of malware, as well as variants and upgrades of notorious malware, are altering the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) of threat actors used to deploy the payloads.
- New sets of devastating critical vulnerabilities, such as Spring4Shell, JekyllBot:5, and Nimbuspwn, each of which creates novel attack vectors whereby threat actors try to gain access to their victims' infrastructure.
