Industry Information
Banking & Finance The United States Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) warned users of an email phishing campaign impersonating the organisation and using a domain name featuring FINRA. The email prompts users to follow a link to view a non-existing firm compliance request, and threatens users with penalties if unspecified information is not submitted.
Government Check Point researchers discovered a surveillance campaign targeting the employees of a government entity in Southeast Asia. The campaign is delivered via spear phishing emails that contain weaponized copies of legitimate looking DOCX documents. Each document downloads a remote template that is a malicious RTF file containing RoyalRoad. The malware gathers some system details from the victim, before a custom next-stage backdoor is downloaded from the C2. The backdoor is capable of manipulating files, taking screenshots, running CMD commands, gathering information, and more. The campaign has been attributed to a Chinese threat group called SharpPanda.
Technology Morphisec researchers observed an ongoing campaign using pay-per-click Google ads to deliver malicious AnyDesk, Dropbox and Telegram packages wrapped in ISO images. The campaign targets specific IP ranges in the United States and likely other countries. Three distinct attack chains were identified that can be attributed to two threat actors. The first actor delivers Redline, whilst the second delivers Taurus and mini-Redline infostealer, a new minimised .NET version of Redline.
Education The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) stated that it is currently investigating an increase in ransomware attacks targeting schools, universities and colleges. The NCSC warned that attackers often target networks via VPNs or Remote Desktop Protocol endpoints containing vulnerabilities, or other unpatched systems, as well as phishing emails. 
Cryptocurrency Microsoft researchers discovered a new ongoing campaign targeting Kubeflow. The attackers target exposed Kubeflow interfaces and deploy legitimate TensorFlow images aiming to mine cryptocurrency. The attackers used two miners, XMRig for CPU mining, and Ethminer for GPU mining. The deployments on the targeted clusters occurred simultaneously, which the researchers stated indicates that the attackers scanned the clusters in advance and built up a list of targets.
