Industry Information
Government Director of the US National Counterintelligence and Security Center William Evanina has alleged that China and Russia are interfering with the US COVID-19 vaccine distribution operation, dubbed Operation Warp Speed. Evanina stated that the US adversaries are ‘trying to disrupt that supply chain.’
Banking & Finance  Abnormal Security researchers identified a phishing campaign using fake automated notifications from BB&T Bank as a lure. The notification falsely informs the victim that they have been locked out of their account due to too many login attempts and directs them to a phishing landing page. Both the notification and the page feature convincing official iconography of the bank. The IP of the phishing page originates from a commercially available VPN service, and is hosted on a suspicious domain. It immediately redirects to a disguised page registered to the Libyan Spider Network, where the victims are asked to enter their banking credentials.
Healthcare Cofense researchers detected an ongoing phishing campaign targeting employees via emails purporting to come from their employer that asks them to fill out a COVID-19 screening form. To appear more legitimate, references to guidelines and protocols issued by the United States Department of Health are also made.The email contains a link that redirects the user to a Google Form landing page hosting the malicious website. Common screening questions are mixed with requests for sensitive credentials and the user is asked to digitally sign the form once completed. The data is then sent to the attacker’s C2.
Education Ben-Gurion University stated that it was targeted in a cyberattack on January 6th, 2021, that resulted in a number of its servers being breached. The university added that it is currently operating regularly, with some ‘isolated difficulties.’ An investigation into the incident is ongoing.

The sender threatened to create millions of backlinks to BleepingComputer’s site from porn sites unless they complied within 48 hours. BleepingComputer reported that other website owners have also received the emails, with some leaving negative reviews for Coinmama on Trustpilot. The CEO of Coinmama Sagi Bakshi informed BleepingComputer that they are not responsible for the attack.
