Trellix Report Exposes Rise in Chinese Cyberthreats; John Fokker Quoted

California-based cybersecurity company Trellix said in a new report that it has found an increase in cyberthreats associated with China and Russia, along with other risks, such as the growth of cyber actor tools capable of eluding endpoint detection and response solutions.

The study from the Trellix Advanced Research Center, titled “The CyberThreat Report: June 2024,” noted that 68.3 percent of all threats detected during the research period were linked to China, with 23 percent of the activities focused on governments across the globe.

A spike in advance persistent threat activities was also observed from the Russia-linked group Sandworm. Detections of malicious activities from the group rose 40 percent in the Trellix June report, compared with the previous six-month research.

Other highlights of the new report include the rise of phishing scams capitalizing on U.S. election donations and the availability of the free ChatGPT 4.0 Jabber tool to cybercriminals.

John Fokker, Trellix head of threat intelligence, described the malicious cyber activity over the past six months as a continuing “state of polycrisis,” with cyber risks accelerating globally.

“The cat and mouse game of cybersecurity is becoming more complex. Security leaders need more operational threat intelligence in order to outpace cybercriminals,” he said.
