Industry Information
Banking & Finance The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation warned of an ongoing spear phishing campaign impersonating Truist Bank. Victims are sent emails that prompt the target to download a malicious Windows application using the Truist brand. The malware is a remote access trojan currently not detected by security products. It is capable of logging keystrokes, taking screenshots, escalating privileges, manipulating the system registry, downloading files, injecting code, and more. According to BleepingComputer, other financial institutions, such as MayBank, FNB America, and Cumberland Private, have also been impersonated in this campaign.
Technology Researchers at BI[.]ZONE reported that FIN7 is distributing its Lizar toolkit disguised as a legitimate pen testing tool for Windows networks. The group searches for victims by filtering companies by revenue using the Zoominfo service. Multiple instances where the attackers pose as Check Point Software Technology and Forcepoint have been identified. The researchers found that the Lizar toolkit is structurally comparable to Carbanak backdoor. BI[.]ZONE warned that the complex toolkit is still being actively developed. At present, most devices infected by Lizar are based in the United States, however, the researchers stated that they believe that the tool will be used against targets around the world. 
Retail & Tourism Malwarebytes researchers observed an ongoing skimming campaign targeting multiple Magento 1 online stores. The campaign involves new PHP web shells, called Smilodon or Megalodon, that dynamically load JavaScript skimming code via server-side requests, making it more difficult to block. The malware disguises itself as a PNG favicon. The researchers believe Magecart 12 is behind the campaign.
Healthcare On May 13th, 2021, the National Cyber Security Centre discovered that the operators of Conti ransomware attempted an attack against the Department of Health. The execution of ransomware payloads was reportedly halted by antivirus software and other tools deployed by investigators. The department suspended some functions of its IT systems as a precaution. The attack is currently under investigation but was found to be part of the same campaign that recently targeted Ireland’s Health Service Executive.
Critical Infrastructure While analyzing an attempted poisoning attack against the Oldsmar water treatment plant, which occurred in February 2021, researchers at Dragos identified a separate intrusion. The incident was linked to a watering hole attack using malicious code hosted on the website of a Florida water infrastructure construction company. More than 1,000 users were profiled by the site, including municipal water utility customers, state and local government agencies, and water industry private companies. The code was linked to the dark web market DarkTeam Store. The store was also where systems infected with a new Tofsee botnet variant, named Tesseract, reported to. The researchers believe that the watering hole was deployed to collect browser data in order to improve Tesseract’s ability to impersonate legitimate web browser activity.
