Industry Information
Banking & Finance Prodaft researchers observed a Toddler Android banking malware campaign primarily targeting Spain since the second half of 2020. The malware also contains some textual content for targeting English, Italian, German, French, and Dutch-speaking users. The Android application containing Toddler is named after shipping services with names like ‘BPOST’, ‘UPS’, and ‘Correos’. Toddler uses a specially crafted login phishing page fetched from its C2 to overlay a targeted application launched by the victim. It targets mobile banking and cryptocurrency applications, and gathers data from apps installed on the victim’s device.
Technology Microsoft researchers linked two Windows zero-day exploits, tracked as CVE-2021-31979 and CVE-2021-33771, to a private-sector offensive tracked as SOURGUM. The group has targeted at least 100 victims in Palestine, Israel, Iran, Lebanon, Yemen, Spain, the United Kingdom, Turkey, Armenia and Singapore with the DevilsTongue spyware. Among the victims are human rights defenders, dissidents, journalists, activists and politicians. The spyware is installed via a chain of browser and Windows exploits, including the two zero-days that were fixed in the July 2021 update. Citizen Lab researchers assess with high confidence that the threat actor is the Israeli company Candiru Ltd, currently called Saito Tech Ltd, which sells spyware exclusively to governments. 
Retail & Tourism Kyodo News reported that on July 21st, 2021, an anonymous Japanese government official informed it of a data breach involving Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic ticket purchasers. The exposed data was said to include login IDs and passwords of ticket buyers, as well as volunteer portal credentials. A spokesman of the Tokyo 2020 International Communications Team later denied that the leak originated from the systems used by the Olympics, but stated that some passwords had been reset for a limited number of IDs. Security researcher ‘pancak3’ told ZDNet that the leak did not result from a breach. Instead individuals were reportedly targeted with RedLine malware and other stealers.
Critical Infrastructure Facebook reported that the Iranian Tortoiseshell group used its platform as part of a campaign targeting military personnel and the aerospace and defence sector in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe. The group employs relatively strong operational security and appears well-resourced and persistent. It primarily used Facebook for social engineering and created sophisticated fake online profiles that often appeared as industry recruiter and employees of aerospace and defence companies. The threat actors attempted to move conversations off Facebook to send malware to their targets. To steal credentials, the group created fake defence company recruiting sites.
Cryptocurrency Researchers at Inky identified dozens of credential harvesting campaigns targeting Coinbase users. One example shared by the researchers uses a hijacked email account to send messages to victims. The email instructs the recipient that they need to resolve an account issue by signing into Coinbase. Users who click on a link are redirected to a hijacked site that features a ‘perfect’ reproduction of a Coinbase login page. Any credentials entered into the site are harvested by the attackers.
