Industry Information
Banking & Finance Cofense researchers detected an increase in business email compromise campaigns that abuse the fact that recent government grants enable small businesses to access financial data quicker. A recent campaign involved an email asking the executive at a global financial firm to ‘please get this information.’ Social engineering tactics, such as the attacker providing support on where to find the information, as well as addressing the recipient by first name, were used.
Education  According to BleepingComputer, a non-public security advisory issued by Microsoft warns of numerous industries, most recently the education sector, being targeted with fake ads for Microsoft Teams updates.Targets are tricked into clicking malicious links which are spread via ads or poisoned search engine results. The user is then redirected onto a spoofed site containing the Teams software. The FakeUpdates attacks, which dropped DoppelPaymer in 2019 and more recently WastedLocker, have begun to use signed binaries, second-stage payloads, and exploits for CVE-2020-1472. The threat actor has used the campaign to deliver NJRat, ZLoader, Predator the Thief, Cobalt Strike beacons, and other payloads.
Critical Infrastructure Weather services authorities across Europe were targeted in a large-scale phishing campaign originating from a compromised email account of an individual in the meteorological community. Threat actors obtained a list of industry contacts and targeted The Met Office and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts in the UK, the State Meteorological Agency in Spain, and the Danish Meteorological Institute. According to New Scientist, the actor spoofed the addresses of several trusted contacts, including the European Commission. The attack caused ‘minor disruption’ as legitimate emails were caught in spam filters, however, no data is believed to have been breached.
Healthcare   The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) warned users of an increased SDBBot Remote Access Tool (RAT) threat faced by the healthcare sector in the country. According to ACSC, SDBBot consists of an installer which ensures persistence, a loader for additional components, and the RAT payload.Once a machine is compromised, SDBBot will move laterally within the targeted network and exfiltrate data. It may also be used as a precursor for Clop ransomware.
Cryptocurrency   The users of the hardware crypto wallet maker Ledger have been targeted in a phishing campaign, resulting in the theft of 1,150,000 Ripple tokens (XRP), or around $291,200. The phishing messages directed users to a website spoofing the legitimate Ledger site by using official branding and replacing one letter in the URL with a homoglyph. Users were asked to download a fake wallet update, which resulted in the exfiltration of XRP. In a different scam, a threat actor impersonated ‘Team Ripple’ in messages announcing a non-existent XRP giveaway, and asking users to register by submitting their Ledger seed phrase or crypto private key. According to the Coin Telegraph, the scammers may have obtained users’ email addresses as a result of a data breach suffered by Ledger earlier this year.
