Weekly Industry View

Industry View
Industry Information
Government The German government warned its Russian counterpart to stop engaging in illegal cyber activities. An increase in phishing attacks targeting German officials has been observed in the lead-up to the September 26th parliamentary elections. The attacks, attributed to the actor Ghostwriter, targeted members of the federal and local parliaments, and have been on the rise since February 2021. According to Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Andrea Sasse, Ghostwriter has been reliably linked to Russian state actors, and the Russian intelligence directorate GRU. Sasse, as well as German intelligence services, warned that the attacks may be gathering intelligence for disinformation campaigns seeking to influence the elections
Critical Infrastructure  The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released a notice that warns of ransomware attacks that aim to disrupt supply chains, with targets ranging from small farms to large producers, processors and manufacturers, and markets and restaurants. The FBI noted that the food and agriculture sector has been increasingly targeted in ransomware attacks in the past months.The notice warns that such attacks could result in financial loss as a result of ransom payments, loss of productivity, and remediation costs.
Technology The Jenkins project discovered an attack against its deprecated Confluence service in late August 2021. The attacker leveraged the Confluence exploit tracked as CVE-2021-26084 to install a Monero miner on the targeted server. The server was taken offline, and the Confluence service has been permanently disabled. Although deprecated to read-only status, the server was linked with the integrated identity system behind Jira, Artifactory, and numerous other services, potentially compromising secrets. Jenkins did not find any proof of developer credentials being exfiltrated, though all privileged credentials were rotated as a precaution.
Education Tallinn University of Technology warned users of a spam campaign impersonating its rector Tiit Land. The spam emails, sent from a third party server, contain a ZIP attachment that deploys trojan malware.
Cryptocurrency Researchers at Kaspersky reported that attackers are impersonating the Luno team to contact users via email with offers of free cryptocurrency. The message informs the users that a payment to their account has been ‘placed on hold due to error(s)’ on their profile. The target is encouraged to click on a link that directs them through a chain of redirects to a spoofed Luno login page which impersonates the real site. The user is prompted to enter their credentials which are then sent to the attackers
