New York [USA], May 20 (ANI): Hacktivism or the subversive use of internet-connected devices and networks to promote political or social agenda is witnessing a sharp decline since 2015.

The 'IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence Index 2019' highlights that between 2015 and 2018 public hacktivist attacks have dropped nearly 95 per cent. Most notably, notorious hacktivist group anonymous and groups associated with it perpetrated fewer attacks, Security Intelligence reports.

However, looking at the hacktivism incidents in 2019, it is expected that this year may see an uptick in attacks. The threat intelligence report further observes a rise in vulnerability reporting, crypto jacking attacks and attacks on critical infrastructure organizations. (ANI)
