Industry Information
Banking & Finance Researchers at PRODAFT analysed the activity of the FluBot malware botnet, which has infected over 60,000 Android devices in two months, with 97% of the victims located in Spain. More than 11 million phone numbers have been collected by the malware’s C2, and it was suspected to be capable of targeting the entire population of Spain within six months. The malware contains a worm-like capability to collect the victim’s address book on its C2, and distribute FluBot to the victim’s contacts via SMS spam. When granted relevant permissions by the user, FluBot can set itself as the default SMS app, make USSD and phone calls, show phishing screens on top of legitimate apps, and more. On March 2nd, 2021, four men suspected of managing the malware were arrested in Barcelona by Catalan police.
Government According to Prague’s mayor Zdeněk Hřib, a ‘massive’ cyberattack has targeted the public administration systems, resulting in a temporary outage of its email systems as a precautionary measure. The attack reportedly did not damage any data. Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Jana Maláčová stated that the ministry had also been targeted. The Czech Republic National Cyber and Information Agency, which is working with affected organisations, did not provide details on the extent of the attack. It remains unclear who was behind the incident.
Healthcare Proofpoint researchers identified multiple campaigns exploiting public interest in COVID-19 relief, vaccines and variant news. The researchers note that they have not previously seen attacks using a single social engineering lure for such a long period of time. Among the recently observed campaigns are three malware campaigns that deliver Dridex, Amadey downloader, and AsyncRAT. Two business email compromise attacks and one credential phishing campaign were also observed.
Technology KrebsOnSecurity was informed by anonymous sources that the Chinese Hafnium group has hacked at least 30,000 organisations in the US and hundreds of thousands worldwide by exploiting four recently disclosed zero-day issues in Microsoft Exchange Servers. Researchers at ESET reported that, in addition to Hafnium, groups that exploited the flaws include Tick, LuckyMouse, Calypso, Websiic, the Winnti Group, Tonto Team, DLTMiner and Mikroceen. According to ESET, all the groups, besides DTLMiner, are focused on espionage.
Cryptocurrency Aquasec researchers detected the return of a campaign first discovered in September 2020, in which threat actors target automated build processes of GitHub and Docker Hub. In the most recent campaign, the threat actors set up 92 malicious Docker Hub registries and 92 Bitbucket repositories within four days, the resources of which are used for cryptocurrency mining. The campaign involves the attackers setting up fake email, Bitbucket and Docker Hub accounts and making their repositories and registries appear as benign to evade detection. The threat actors build images on the service providers’ environments and then hijack their resources.
