We continue to read that Cuba Ransomware attacks Veeam Backup servers that are unpatched, unmaintained, or outdated. The Cuba ransomware group is exploiting a bug in data backup software exposed in March, warn security experts. It’s even been claimed that they have added a new set of tools to their arsenal along with CVE-2023-27532, the Veeam vulnerability.
Hi, I hope that you had a lovely summer holiday and wanted to thank everyone who has already registered for the first Veeam User Group in France (September 14, 2023)! To those who haven´t done it yet, the form will be open for the rest of 3 next weeks, so I hope each of you will find a minute of your time to share with the community your plans, and feedback, so we can plan the VUG Monaco in the best possible way. We are targeting session tunings to launch once registration is done – I will inform you about that happening when it´s time. 😉
According to the 2023 Ransomware Trends Report (Data Protection), 85% of organizations suffered at least one cyber attack in the preceding twelve months; an increase from 76% experienced in the prior year. To better understand the preparedness and recoverability of cyber attacks, an independent research firm conducted a blind survey of 1,200 unbiased IT leaders whose organizations suffered at least one ransomware attack in 2022. Organizations of all sizes from 14 different countries across APJ, EMEA and the Americas were represented.
The survey asked about the impact that ransomware had on their environments, as well as what their IT strategies and data protection initiatives are moving forward. While analysts forecasted growth in overall IT spending for 2023 between 4.5% by IDC and 5.4% by Gartner, respondents in this survey expect their cyber security (preventative) budgets to grow by 5.6% and their data protection (remediation) budgets to grow by 5.5% in 2023.
