Industry Information
Banking & Finance In June 2021, researchers at Kryptos Logic identified a new development to the TrickBot webinject module. The threat actors have now added support for Zeus-style webinject configs. The researchers stated that the development of the webinject module indicates that TrickBot is going to return to bank fraud operations.
Cryptocurrency Researchers at Lookout Threat Lab identified over 170 Android apps, 25 of which were on Google Play, that pretend to be cryptomining apps. The apps simply display fictitious earning activities while generating revenue from users purchasing the app and purchasing fake upgrades. The apps are estimated to have scammed over 93,000 users out of at least $350,000. Some of the apps have Bitcoin and Ethereum payment options in addition to payments via the Google Play in-app billing system. The researchers stated that multiple criminal actors set up the apps. While the apps have been removed from Google Play, dozens more are reportedly still being circulated in third-party app stores.
Government Researchers at Check Point identified an ongoing cyber espionage operation that dates back to 2014. The campaign is believed to be the work of Chinese APT group IndigoZebra. The group’s recent activity has targeted the Afghan National Security Council, while historic activity targeted entities in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. The recent operation targeting Afghanistan began with a spear phishing email asking the recipient to review a document. The email contains a password-protected RAR archive and features a file which drops and executes the BoxCaon backdoor.
Critical Infrastructure TeamT5 researchers discovered two installers of a new backdoor called MemzipRAT targeting a South Korean company in the aerospace sector. The malware has been linked to the North Korean APT group CloudDragon, which has been known to abuse VPN vulnerabilities in attacks. The researchers believe that the new malware is an extension of earlier campaigns, and is exploiting a new VPN zero-day vulnerability.
Technology On July 2nd, 2021, Huntress researchers discovered that Kaseya VSA servers were used to deploy REvil ransomware in an attack that affected thousands of businesses. The company is currently tracking about 30 impacted managed service providers globally. On its dark web site, the operators of REvil have asked for $70,000,000 to decrypt all victims. All exploited VSA servers are on-premises and the researchers confirmed that a SQLi vulnerability was exploited in the attack. Kaseya was reportedly already working on a fix for these when the attack occurred.
