This chart shows the trending Attack Types related to Banking within a curated list of cyber sources over the past week.

Weekly Industry View

Industry Information
Banking & Finance The United States Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) warned users of a phishing campaign impersonating the organisation. The emails purportedly come from FINRA Support, and instruct users to view an attached report. The sender’s address uses the domain name Westour, which is not connected to FINRA.
Retail & Tourism Malwarebytes researchers analysed Lil’ Skim, a web skimmer first reported on by security researchers Eric Brandel and Jordan Herman in early June 2021. The earliest instance of the skimmer appears to date back to March 2020. The skimmer not only names its domains after Google, a common practice by Magecart threat actors, but also names them after the websites that it compromises, frequently seen with phishing sites. The top level domains are exchanged with .site, .website, or .pw and the created hosts load the skimmer code and receive the stolen credit card data.
Education  In a Telegram message, the pro-Palestinian hacker group DragonForce Malaysia claimed to have hacked Israel’s AcadeME, a company that aids students in finding employment. On June 28th, 2021, the AcadeME website was offline, with a statement saying it ‘should be back soon.’ DragonForce also leaked data supposedly taken from the company, including emails, passwords, first and last names, addresses, and phone numbers of about 280,000 students. The data reportedly dates back to 2014.
Critical Infrastructure Fortinet researchers discovered a highly targeted spear phishing campaign aimed against aviation companies that delivers AsyncRAT, a remote access trojan (RAT) that uses keylogging to capture credentials. The campaign involves emails impersonating the General Civil Aviation Authority using a spoofed sender and containing malicious links disguised as PDF attachments. The IP address delivering the phishing emails is associated with Snip3 Crypter, which was used in an aviation-themed campaign in April and May of 2021. However, the RAT loader contains a PDB string different to the previous Snip3 campaign, and therefore has likely come from a different author.
Technology Confiant researchers discovered an ongoing malvertising campaign, where seemingly benign Google Chrome browser extensions are used to redirect a user to an intermediate domain before displaying Yahoo search results. The extensions’ authors were found to be affiliates of Yahoo, which means they receive a commission for each sponsored search click. The malicious extensions typically remain available on the Chrome Web Store for several days to a week. One extension was seen having a growth rate of 1,000 users per day. The researchers warned that, even after the extension is removed from the Chrome Web Store, it will continue to persist locally.
