Industry Information
Government Unnamed sources informed Reuters that suspected Chinese hackers exploited a flaw in SolarWinds software to target the National Finance Center (NFC), a payroll agency inside the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). According to one source, the infrastructure and hacking tools have previously been used by state-backed Chinese espionage groups. The exploited flaw is different to the widely reported compromise of the SolarWinds Orion platform, which was allegedly carried out by Russian threat actors.
Retail & Hospitality Malwarebytes researchers discovered the websites for Costway France, UK, Germany and Spain were compromised by a credit card skimmer exploiting a flaw in Magento 1, a software that has reached end-of-life. Further analysis revealed the Costway sites had been compromised twice, with the second attacker’s skimmer harvesting credit card details from the skimmer injected in the first compromise. In addition, the second attacker’s skimmer also created its own form fields in the event that the first skimmer is removed. The researchers note that the first attacker’s custom domain used to host their code is linked to a previously seen family and warn that the group is ‘quite active’ at present. The researchers also stated that many sites still using Magento 1 have been targeted in recent months, with RiskIQ attributing such attacks to Magecart Group 12.
Technology An investigation by Citizen Lab and Motherboard found possible links between a fake WhatsApp app aimed at iPhone users and the Italian surveillance firm Cy4Gate. Cy4Gate stated that the config domains discovered by the researchers are not attributable to the firm. The attack was first detected by ZecOps and further analysis by Citizen Lab researchers revealed a site supposedly advertising Whatsapp for download. The download instead installs a special configuration file for iPhones. The app is potentially designed to collect information about the victim.This includes the Unique Device Identifier and International Mobile Equipment Identity numbers. Further details on the type of data collected could not be verified.
Banking & Finance ZDNet reported a wave of microloan app scams targeting Indian users. The apps allegedly leverage loan agreements to access the borrower’s WhatsApp contacts, and deposit more money to the target’s account than originally borrowed, using multiple loan providers. The scammers then invoke collection agents to obtain sums many times larger than originally expected by borrowers, and reportedly manufacture fake pornographic images of their targets to blackmail them. Cashless Consumer identified nearly 1,000 such apps which cannot be traced to a physical address, and are believed to bend legal requirements. SaveIndia Foundation researchers also found that ‘hundreds’ of lender accounts operated from abroad, with links to China.
Critical Infrastructure Researchers at ClearSky determined that activity and tools related to suspicious network activity discovered in early 2020 is strongly connected to Lebanese Cedar. The group has been active since 2012 and targets organisations to steal sensitive information. The researchers found that the group breached around 250 servers and attacked companies in a range of countries, including the US, the UK, Egypt, and Israel. The majority of targets operate in the IT and telecommunications sector. The attackers targeted vulnerable Atlassian and Oracle 10g servers and installed a modified JSP file browser to deploy Explosive RAT.  The group is believed to be connected to the Lebanese government or a political group in the country. Possible links to the Hezbollah Cyber Unit have also been identified.
