November 2016: Top Hacks and Breaches [INFOGRAPHIC]

The winter is just getting started, and the damage is as big as ever with new vulnerabilities and malware leading to even more hacks and breaches. November’s biggest breach in numbers is the AdultFriendFinder hack, when a local file inclusion vulnerability led to the exposure of over 400m user details. Keeping up with the transportation-hacks trend, San Francisco’s transit system was hacked over the busy Thanksgiving weekend, as the hackers left the system unable to collect fares until a ransom of $70k in bitcoins was paid. And in a continued malware attack, millions (and counting) of Google accounts have been affected by malicious software.
