The outgoing week saw a handful of incidents with far-reaching effects on the
cybersecurity landscape. From the Russian attackers compromising Microsoft
cloud customers to Vietnam being targeted in a supply chain attack to Wasabi
cloud storage service knocked offline for hosting, the world of cybersecurity was
rocked by multiple events perpetrated by malicious threat actors.
Here is the review of the stories that made headlines in the outgoing week.
