Mobile Malware mentions in Banking & Finance

This chart shows the trending Mobile malware related to Banking & Finance within a curated list of cyber sources over the past week.

Weekly Industry View

Industry Information
Government The UK’s HM Courts & Tribunals Service warned users of scammers impersonating County Court bailiffs by distributing emails that falsely inform users of required payments. The emails contain attachments with HM Courts & Tribunals Service iconography, include bank account details for the payments, and are often followed by a telephone call from the scammers.
Technology  Armorblox observed a credential phishing campaign targeting multiple of their customers’ environments across Office 365, Google Workspace, and Exchange. The emails are sent from an abused legitimate domain belonging to the Full Gospel Baptist Church. The campaign impersonates the email encryption company Zix, inviting users to view a ‘secure’ message. Clicking on the message’s link prompts an install of an HTML file which directs to a page blocked by site blockers. The campaign is highly targeted, with targets deliberately chosen from across departments, including high-ranking positions, and never targeting more than one employee of the same department.
Banking & Finance  The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team warned users of an active Android banking trojan campaign leveraging Drinik malware. Victims receive SMS directing them to a phishing website impersonating India’s Income Tax Department, which prompts them to enter personal details and launches a download of a malicious APK. The app falsely informs the user of a pending tax refund, and creates a personalised mobile banking overlay based on the information previously submitted by the user. The victim is then prompted to enter their banking credentials, which are captured by the scammers.
Retail & Tourism  ESET researchers uncovered a new cyberespionage group, dubbed FamousSparrow, which has largely targeted hotels since at least August 2019. Other targets have included governments, international organisations, engineering companies and law firms in 12 countries. FamousSparrow leveraged the ProxyLogon Microsoft Exchange vulnerabilities in March 2021 to take over Exchange mail servers globally. Remote code execution flaws in Microsoft Sharepoint and Oracle Opera have also been exploited to deploy various custom tools. Among these is a new backdoor, dubbed SparrowDoor, that is loaded via DLL search order hijacking, and two custom versions of Mimikatz. The group was also observed using the Motnug loader, which has been linked to SparklingGoblin, as well as a domain linked to DRBControl. However, the researchers believe FamousSparrow to be a separate threat actor.
Cryptocurrency  On September 23rd, 2021, the Bitcoin[.]org website was hijacked by hackers who encouraged users to send Bitcoin to an attacker-controlled wallet and receive double the amount in return. To exert pressure, the notification impersonating The Bitcoin Foundation stated that the offer was only limited to the first 10,000 users. The attackers reportedly made just over $17,000. Namecheap, the site’s registrar, temporarily disabled the domain until the issue was resolved. It remains unclear how the attack occurred, with some speculating it may have been a DNS hijack.
