Industry Information
Government Microsoft warned that the Iranian Phosphorus group targeted over 100 high-profile individuals by posing as conference organisers. The phishing campaign targeted potential attendees of the Think 20 Summit in Saudi Arabia and the Munich Security Conference. The emails, which appeared legitimate, offered recipients remote conference sessions. The targets included government officials, academics, and policy experts, who were directed to phishing pages, and asked to enter their email credentials. Microsoft stated that the campaign appears to be focused on intelligence collection. The threat actors’ efforts successfully compromised some victims, including senior policy experts and a former ambassador. 
Education  Sophos reported that the Silent Librarian APT group attempted to infect the University of British Columbia (UBC) with ransomware by sending phishing emails to staff. The message linked to a fake COVID-19 survey hosted on Box and DropBox. The document contained a malicious macro, the ultimate purpose of which was to download Vaggen ransomware onto the target’s device. The researchers found that files could be recovered free of charge. The researchers reported their findings to UBC, who stated it was already aware of the incident and had managed to prevent any successful attacks. 
Retail & Hospitality  An anonymous source informed BleepingComputer that Boyne Resorts, which operates skiing and golfing resorts in North America, has been impacted by a WastedLocker ransomware incident. A further anonymous employee informed the publication that the incident impacted the company’s corporate office and subsequently spread to the resorts’ IT systems. To prevent the spread of the ransomware, the company reportedly shut down portions of its network. 
Healthcare   The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) warned of an ‘increased and imminent’ cyber threat to the Healthcare and Public Health (HPH) sector. The agencies stated that threat actors are using Trickbot malware against the HPH sector. Post-compromise activities often involve deploying Ryuk ransomware on the target’s system. Researchers at FireEye also warned that they had seen Ryuk operators, tracked as UNC1878, deploying the ransomware following compromise carried out by campaigns that distribute other malware, such as KEGTAP and SINGLEMALT, or WINEKEY. These malware are linked to BazarLoader and BazarBackdoor, which are thought to be developed by Trickbot operators. KrebsOnSecurity was informed by Alex Hold of Hold Security, that cybercriminals affiliated with Ryuk had been discussing plans to deploy ransomware against over 400 healthcare facilities in the US. 
Cryptocurrency   On October 26th, 2020, a hacker stole approximately $24 million worth of cryptocurrency from Harvest Finance. The decentralized finance service disclosed that the ‘attacker exploited an arbitrage and impermanent loss that influences the value of individual assets inside the Y pool of Curve[.]fi’. The company went on to state that the issue was caused by an engineering error. The hacker, who returned $2.5 million for an unknown reason, has reportedly been identified according to a Discord posting by Harvest Finance.
