Industry Information
Cryptocurrency The LCX Exchange confirmed that a wallet compromise led to the loss of several cryptocurrency tokens with an accumulated value of $6.8 million. The hacker transferred eight types of tokens, including Ether, USD Coin, Sandbox, Quant, Chainlink, and more, and LCX Exchange has since suspended all deposits and withdrawals.
Healthcare The United States Department of Health and Human Services warned the healthcare sector of continued PYSA ransomware campaigns against the sector. The campaigns involve various other tools, including ADRecon, Advanced Port Scanner, DNSGo RAT, Mimikatz, PEASS and PowerShell Empire. The US, the UK, Canada, Spain, and Brazil, are PYSA operators’ most frequently targeted countries.
Banking & Finance Cofense researchers discovered a COVID-19 themed phishing campaign attempting to harvest banking credentials from users of New Zealand’s ASB Bank. Whilst the body of the emails initially seems legitimate, they are clearly not sent from an official ASB Bank address. Once users enter their login credentials, they are prompted for a one-time password (OTP), and it is possible the threat actor may have tools to automatically use this information in real time. Victims are redirected to the legitimate ASB Bank home page once they have provided their credentials and OTP.  
Critical Infrastructure The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation released an updated flash alert warning that the financially motivated threat actors, FIN7, are using packages containing malicious USB devices to deploy ransomware. The transportation and insurance sector has been targeted since August 2021, and defence companies since November 2021. Packages containing ‘BadUSB’ or ‘Bad Beetle USB’ devices are sent by FIN7 using the United States Postal Service and United Parcel Service. The attackers impersonate Amazon and the US Department of Health & Human Services to trick targets into opening the packages, and connecting the USB device to their systems. The end goal for the attackers is to deploy ransomware, including BlackMatter and REvil, on the compromised system
Government Malwarebytes researchers examined a recent campaign from Indian threat actor, Patchwork APT, in which malicious RTF files were used to drop a variant of the BADNEWS RAT against Pakistani targets between late November and early December 2021. The new variant of the BADNEWS RAT, dubbed Ragnatela, was distributed via spear phishing emails, which included documents impersonating Pakistani authorities. Confirmed victims so far include the Pakistani Ministry of Defense, the National Defense University of Islamabad, as well as molecular medicine and biological sciences departments at UVAS University, the University of Karachi, and SHU University.
