Attacks on healthcare providers, state and local governments, and schools decreased in January. They all experienced the lowest number of monthly attacks since at least February 2023, according to data collected by Recorded Future from various sources like extortion sites, government agencies, news reports, and hacking forums.

Recent law enforcement actions against ransomware actors and cybercriminals may have temporarily reduced the number of attacks. For instance, in late August, the FBI took down the Qakbot ransomware gang’s infrastructure and removed ransomware from infected devices.
