Cyber-Attacks On Rise: Cloudflare
Cybersecurity provider Cloudflare says it has observed a significant rise in threats toward its customers in recent months.
The comments come from CEO Matthew Prince, just days after a ransomware cyberattack hit Colonial Pipeline.
Prince said the world is currently experiencing an unparalleled amount of cybersecurity activity. The attack on Colonial led the company to halt operations on a key piece of US petroleum infrastructure as it crippled Colonial’s IT systems.
The company said the goal is to restore most operational services by the end of the week.
A relatively new hacker group known as DarkSide is responsible for the Colonial Pipeline attack, according to the FBI.
