Industry Information
Government On April 21st, 2022, the outgoing president of Costa Rica, Carlos Alvarado, stated that the recent Conti ransomware attacks targeting state computer systems are aimed at destabilising the country as it transitions to the new government of president-elect Rodrigo Chaves. According to Alvarado, the threat of attacks remains ‘latent.’ Certain platforms, including for tax and customs, remain suspended. This has affected imports and exports, amounting to $200 million in losses.
Critical Infrastructure Deutsche Windtechnik AG was targeted in a cyberattack between April 11th and April 12th, 2022. The incident left them unable to remotely control around 2,000 wind turbines for at least a day, as they were switched off for security reasons. The company was later listed on the leak site of Black Basta ransomware operators. It is the third German wind-energy company to have reported an incident since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Banking & Finance Hackers of Savior claim to have hacked into the system used to transfer money between Israeli banks. This consequently gave them access to the personal accounts of individuals. The attackers, who are reportedly linked to Iran, uploaded their claims in a video on April 25th, 2022. Israel’s National Cyber Directorate and the Bank of Israel claim they have found no indication that such hacking took place. The alleged attack is largely thought to have been faked in order to create panic.
Technology IBM researchers identified a phishing campaign by the likely financially-motivated group Hive0117 targeting the telecommunications, electronic, and industrial sectors in Lithuania, Estonia, and Russia. The campaign, first observed in February 2022, delivers a fileless malware variant dubbed DarkWatchman. The phishing emails impersonate the Russian Government’s Federal Bailiffs Service and contain Russian-language text relating to enforcement procedures associated with the Kuntevsky District Court of Moscow. A malicious ZIP archive attachment contains an executable designed to deliver the DarkWatchman JavaScript backdoor and encrypted source code for a keylogger.
Cryptocurrency Cybercriminals hacked the Bored Ape Yacht Club’s Instagram account and posted a link to a copycat website that aimed to harvest users’ assets. The post promised a free airdrop to users that connected their MetaMask wallets to the scammers’ digital wallet. The attackers successfully stole numerous non-fungible tokens (NFTs) with a total estimated value of $3 million. It remains unclear how the attacker gained access to the account.
