Attack Types mentions in Healthcare

Time Series

This chart shows the trending Attack Types related to Healthcare over the last week.

Weekly Industry View

Industry View
Industry Information
Retail & Hospitality A highly targeted phishing campaign is currently targeting UK users via fake Subway order confirmations. The emails contain a link that leads to a malicious Excel document which installs Trickbot malware. Subway UK disclosed that a server used for its email campaigns had been compromised. The company stated that no evidence was found to suggest guest accounts had been hacked, nor are any bank or credit card details impacted. 
Government  ESET researchers observed the HyberBro backdoor, Korplug RAT, and Tmanger being delivered via Able Desktop, used by 430 government agencies in Mongolia. The software’s update system appears to have been compromised since at least June 2020, with trojanised installers delivered since at least May 2018. The campaign, dubbed StealthyTrident, has been linked to LuckyMouse, which shares its access to compromised devices with TA428. Both are believed to be subgroups of the same threat actor. The researchers also identified a connection with ShadowPad backdoor.
Technology FireEye researchers discovered a trojanised version of the SolarWinds Orion plugin being distributed via business software updates since spring 2020. The ongoing supply chain attack has targeted a range of governmental, consulting, technology, telecom and extractive organisations globally. The backdoor, dubbed SUNBURST, is capable of transferring and executing files, profiling the system, rebooting the device, and disabling system services. FireEye researchers attributed the attacks to UNC2452. Three individuals familiar with the US investigation into the attacks informed Reuters that Russia is believed to be responsible. The Russian foreign ministry called the accusation ‘unfounded.’ 
Banking & Finance IBM researchers discovered an ongoing mobile banking fraud campaign that uses mobile device emulators to set up spoofed devices to access compromised accounts. The accounts were likely previously infected by malware or the credentials collected via phishing pages. The attackers ensure that each emulator appears exactly as the legitimate device or as a new device added by the user. An automated process is used to match all device characteristics and technical specs from a database of compromised device logs, including the account holder’s username and password for bank accounts. A mix of legitimate, publicly available tools, and custom applications are used in the operation. The researchers note that the emulator attacks have the potential to work on any application with online access, including obtaining access codes via SMS. In some cases, over 20 emulators were used to spoof over 16,000 devices to steal millions of dollars.
Healthcare An investigation into medical device security by researchers at CybelAngel revealed that many devices are vulnerable to attacks or expose sensitive data due to the technology being outdated. Over 45 million unique cases of Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine files were discovered that were exposed on the open web on unprotected servers. This includes X-rays, MRI and CT scans, and accompanying data that could identify the individual in the images.
