Industry Information
Government The website of the Israeli Ministry of Health was targeted in a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack on July 17th, 2022, which intermittently restricted access to the site from abroad. The Pro-Iran group Al-Tahira has claimed responsibility for the attack. Last week, the group additionally claimed to have hacked the Jerusalem Municipality website and the website of the state-owned company, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems. On July 18th, 2022, Al-Tahira also targeted the website of the Tel Aviv Municipality.
Retail & Hospitality Insikt Group researchers discovered two separate, ongoing Magecart campaigns that are targeting the online ordering platforms MenuDrive, Harbortouch, and InTouchPOS. To date, at least 311 restaurants have become infected with skimmers, though this number is expected to grow. Over 50,000 compromised payment card records are currently for sale on the dark web as a result of the campaigns.
Education Intrusiontruth researchers determined that recent activity from the Chinese state-backed group, APT41, has focused on targeting universities in Taiwan and Hong Kong. The researchers observed multiple sustained connections to the C2 servers of the custom malware tool, RouterGod, from IP addresses associated with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Education universities. APT41 also allegedly exfiltrated personally identifiable information on staff, students, and alumni from the National Taiwan University databases.
Cryptocurrency The FBI warned of threat actors impersonating legitimate cryptocurrency investment services to defraud investors. The attackers convince victims to download a fake app and deposit cryptocurrency. When attempting to withdraw the funds, the victims are sent an email stating that they need to pay taxes on their investments before making withdrawals. Between October 4th, 2021, and May 13th, 2022, the campaigns have resulted in an estimated loss of $42.7 million from 244 victims. Among the impersonated brands were YiBit and Supayos.
Technology Dragos researchers discovered a campaign targeting industrial engineers and operators with software that supposedly cracks passwords for programmable logic controllers, human-machine interfaces, and project files. The software infects the machine with Sality malware and makes it part of the Sality peer-to-peer botnet. The program does not crack passwords, but instead exploits a vulnerability in the firmware to retrieve the password. The identified flaw, tracked as CVE-2022-2003, affects Automation Direct’s DirectLogic 06. The researchers warned that other vendors are also affected.
