Attackers continued to stick to a well-known playbook for the second quarter of 2019, focusing on attacking websites using SQL injection attacks and stealing passwords and credentials via malware and phishing attacks, according to the latest quarterly threat report from security firm WatchGuard.

While the company saw a slight decline in many threat metrics — with antivirus detections declining 6% between quarters and more sophisticated threats declining 2% — each of the top 10 network attacks on WatchGuard’s list increased in volume, with the frequency of the top attack, SQL injection, jumping by a factor of 12. Overall, the two types of SQL injection attacks included on the list counted for more than a third of all network attacks detected by the firm’s devices.

Only two of the other top 10 attacks — exploits focused on vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash and Shockwave — were not Web-based threats, the report found.
