October 4, 2016: The US has refrained from commenting on the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army on terror launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir last week while calling for calm and restraint.

“We’re not going to speak to specific reports of incidents along the border,” Elizabeth Trudeau, Director of the US State Department Press Office, said at the daily press briefing here on Monday.

The Indian Army late on September 26 night and early September 27 morning carried out a series of surgical strikes on terror launch pads across the LoC in which “significant casualties have been caused to the terrorists and those who are trying to support them”.

The attacks came in retaliation to the September 18 cross-border terror attack on an army garrison at Uri in Jammu and Kashmir in which 19 Indian soldiers lost their lives.

In her briefing, Trudeau said that “conflicts or issues or rising tension are not contained to any specific region”.

“We are in favour of any reduction of tensions that both sides agree to in this particular instance,” she stated.

Phishing attacks targeting organisations rose up considerably during the pandemic.

Phishing attacks targeting organisations rose up considerably during the pandemic, as millions of employees working from home became a prime target for cybercriminals. A large majority (83 per cent) of IT teams in India said the number of phishing emails targeting their employees increased during 2020, according to a report by UK-based cybersecurity firm Sophos on Monday.

"It can be tempting for organisations to see phishing attacks as a relatively low-level threat, but that underestimates their power. Phishing is often the first step in a complex, multi-stage attack. According to Sophos Rapid Response, attackers frequently use phishing emails to trick users into installing malware or sharing credentials that provide access to the corporate network," Sophos' Principal Research Scientist, Chester Wisniewski said in a statement. The findings also reveal that there is a lack of common understanding about the definition of phishing. For instance, 67 per cent of IT teams in India associate phishing with emails that falsely claim to be from a legitimate organisation, and which are usually combined with a threat or request for information.
