Weekly Industry View

Industry Information
Banking & Finance CloudSEK researchers discovered that threat actors are increasingly abusing Hostinger preview domains to host phishing sites for campaigns targeting Indian banking customers. The preview domain feature enables threat actors to distribute the URLs before the domains are accessible globally, thus helping in evading detection. The malicious domains are temporary mirrors of their root domains. They are spread via text, email, and social media. Some of the observed domains appear to imitate Bank of America. 
Government On August 9th, 2022, the website of the Finnish Parliament went offline for several hours after it was targeted in a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. Pro-Russian hacker group NoName057 claimed responsibility for the attack on their Telegram channel. The group alluded to Finland’s NATO aspirations as the motivation for the attack. The attack occurred on the same day as US President Joe Biden signed ratification documents in support of Finland and Sweden to join NATO. 
Technology Meta researchers revealed that the cyber espionage group Bitter APT, believed to be operating out of India and Pakistan, has been using fake versions of WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram to install the Dracarys spyware on Android devices. The activity has targeted thousands of users in New Zealand, India, Pakistan, and the United Kingdom. The company also announced action on a Pakistan-based government threat actor, APT36, who was creating Android spy tools masquerading as WhatsApp, WeChat, and YouTube. A modified version of XploitSPY is being used to target individuals in Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia. Over 10,000 users are thought to have been targeted by APT36 and Bitter APT. 
Retail 7-Eleven suffered a ransomware attack on August 8th, 2022, which resulted in stores in Denmark being unable to use cash registers or accept payments. All stores in the country were temporarily closed as a result, but most have since reopened. On August 3rd, 2022, some branches of 7-Eleven stores in Taiwan were also seemingly attacked, as television screens in stores displayed the message ‘Warmonger Pelosi, get out of Taiwan!’ It remains unclear whether the same threat actor was behind the two incidents.
Healthcare The UK National Health Service (NHS) 111 emergency service is suffering an outage following a ransomware attack against its managed service provider, Advanced Computer Software Group Limited. The incident reportedly left patients unable to get urgent appointments and ambulance callouts. Over 1,000 care homes, as well as mental health services across the NHS are also impacted. However, the NHS reports that disruptions are minimal.
