Industry Information
Banking & Finance Researchers at Seguranca Informatica observed the Javali trojan utilising a legitimate Avira antivirus PE file as an injector to carry out DLL side-loading. The malicious DLL, which impersonates a legitimate Avira one, is packed and enlarged with junk, a common technique with Latin American trojans to evade detection. The malware is spread via phishing emails and its main functions include the theft of banking information and other personal information.
Government Anomali researchers discovered a campaign which they state is very likely attributable to the Iranian group Static Kitten. The operation involves targeting government agencies in the United Arab Emirates and likely similar targets throughout the Middle East. The attacks begin with a phishing email containing a snippet of a lure document which directs the target to download a ZIP file. The file hosted by Onehub, contains a ScreenConnect tool, which has been customised to target domains belonging to Ministries of Foreign Affairs. The tool can be used to take screenshots and video, acquire remote control and view internet connected devices, and maintain a persistent connection.
Critical Infrastructure Bloomberg reporters alleged that Chinese actors exploited the US microchip manufacturer Super Micro Computer Inc to spy on various entities in the US and in other countries. The reporters believe that the exploitation relied on modified hardware supplied to the manufacturer from its plant in China. Bloomberg stated that the vendor was associated with the 2010 Pentagon hack which was made possible using code hidden in the affected machines’ basic input-output system. Super Micro stated that they were unable to verify Intel’s report but took steps out of an abundance of caution. Super Micro strongly refuted the other portions of Bloomberg’s story, stating that the report ‘draws farfetched conclusions’. The Chinese Foregin Ministry also rejected the report.
Healthcare According to committee member Ha Tae-keung, South Korea’s National Intelligence Service informed the National Assembly’s intelligence committee that North Korea attempted to hack into the servers of Pfizer. Details on when the attack occurred and whether it was successful were not provided. Ha told reporters that the cyberattack was directed at stealing COVID-19 vaccine and treatment technology.
Cryptocurrency Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 researchers discovered a Monero cryptojacker, dubbed WatchDog, that has been targeting users since January 27th, 2019, and collected at least 209 Monero (approximately $32,056). At least 476 compromised systems, mainly Windows and NIX cloud instances, were performing mining operations at any one time. The researchers warned that, although no additional cloud compromising activity has been observed at present, the threat actors could likely find IAM-related information on the already compromised systems.
