Industry Information
Government The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reported that an Iranian advanced persistent threat actor targeted US state election sites. The attacker successfully acquired records in at least one instance by using website misconfiguration and scripted process. The threat actor conducted scans against the sites using Acunetix between September 20th and September 28th, 2020. Between September 29th and October 17th, 2020, the threat actor attempted to acquire information by exploiting known vulnerabilities, targeting unique flaws in websites, via web shell uploads, SQL injections, and more.
Education  Inky reported that they stopped thousands of malicious emails sent from compromised university email accounts. The emails, which pass by Secure Email Gateways, came from accounts such as Purdue University, University of Oxford, Stanford University, University of Chicago, and more.
Critical Infrastructure Red Sky Alliance researchers observed a number of phishing emails targeting the maritime shipping industry between October 26th and October 31st, 2020. The campaigns used existing vessel and company names to impersonate employees. One of the attacks targeted a Mediterranean Shipping Company tax officer with a targeted email which used the company name in the subject line. The email contained an executable attachment with the Fareit!ml malware disguised to appear like a zipped PDF file. Another campaign used the name of the MV Prabhu Sakhawat vessel in an attempt to trick victims into opening a Microsoft Word or Excel document and enabling macros to load malware.
Healthcare    An employee of Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn informed BleepingComputer that Ryuk ransomware had been deployed against the hospital. The ransomware reportedly encrypted many of the hospital’s devices before Wyckoff was able to shut down parts of its network. AP News reported that the University of Vermont Health Network was also hit with a cyberattack which impacted six hospitals in Vermont and New York. It is currently unknown if Ryuk ransomware was used in the attack. Security researchers at Check Point warned that they had identified a 71% rise in ransomware attacks against the US healthcare sector in October 2020. The researchers found that 75% of these incidents involved Ryuk.
Cryptocurrency    The new Axion Network token, named AXN, was hacked immediately after its launch on November 2nd, 2020. A threat actor minted 79 billion AXN and used the AXN Uniswap exchange to convert them to 1,300 Ethereum ETH coins, worth around $500,000. The AXN price fell to zero. According to the Coin Telegraph, the attack was carried out by an inside actor who injected malicious code that modified the OpenZeppelin AccessControl implementation. The code was injected after independent auditors had reviewed the platform, but before its deployment. The actor utilised an unstake function of the Axion Staking contract to carry out the attack. The function was added with the malicious injection, and was not intended to be a part of the platform.
