Industry Information
Banking & Finance Cyble researchers observed a new phishing campaign impersonating Commerzbank that is using fake websites to spread malicious apps made to appear as the official Commerzbank app. The malware is a new variant of Hydra and capable of collecting contacts and SMS, stealing credentials, modifying device settings, and more. A variant of the HQwar banking trojan is also currently spread via fake Commerzbank apps, with the threat actor using the same IPs as for Hydra.Cryptocurrency
Retail & Tourism Researchers at Sift discovered an actor named Proxy Phantom carrying out automated credential stuffing attacks against online merchants with 1.5 million sets of stolen account credentials. The actor conducts as many as 2,691 login attempts per second using rotating IP addresses to make the requests appear more authentic and geographically distributed. The actor’s activity particularly increased between April and June 2021, when its IP clusters doubled.
Critical Infrastructure Cybereason researchers discovered an ongoing espionage campaign, dubbed Operation GhostShell, targeting the aerospace and telecommunications industries. The campaign has been active since at least 2018 and has largely been directed against entities in the Middle East. The threat actors use a custom remote access trojan, dubbed ShellClient, in highly targeted attacks. The campaign has been attributed to a previously unknown Iranian threat actor, dubbed MalKamak, that is likely state-sponsored.
Technology Sophos researchers detected a ransomware attack involving the new Atom Silo ransomware. The ransomware is ‘virtually identical’ to LockFile, though several novel techniques were used in the attack. Initial access was gained by exploiting a recently patched remote code execution vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2021-26084, in Atlassian Confluence Server to provide a backdoor.
