∗∗∗ Cyber Security Assessment Netherlands 2017: Digital resilience is lagging behind the increasing threat ∗∗∗
---------------------------------------------
The digital resilience of individuals and organisations is lagging behind the increasing threat. Government, business and citizens take many steps to increase digital resilience, but this is not happening fast enough. This is apparent from the Cyber Security Assessment Netherlands 2017 (CSAN 2017), which demissionary State Secretary Dijkhoff sent to parliament in June and which is being published in English today.

∗∗∗ Mining Adminers – Hackers Scan the Internet For DB Scripts ∗∗∗
---------------------------------------------
Hackers are constantly scanning the internet for exploitable sites, which is why even small, new sites should be fully patched and protected. At the same time, it is not feasible to scan the whole internet with 330+ million domains and billions of web pages. Even Google can’t do it, but hackers are always getting better at reconnaissance. Despite these limitations, scanning just 1% of the internet allows attackers to discover thousands of vulnerable sites.
