Spam and phishing mail

A Nigerian Easter egg

We’ve just come across a neat little phishing attack. The Equitorial Trust Bank seems to have a few issues with server security. Of course, the fact that the bank is located in Nigeria might ring a few warning bells, and we’re looking into this.

Currently, however, the bank doesn’t seem to have noticed the Easter egg that they’re hosting – a phishing page for eggTM banking customers.

The eggTM page differs from the legitimate eggTM log-in page only in the colours that it uses. Sadly, we know from experience that users often don’t notice differences like that.

Of course, we’ve notified the bank, and maybe they’ll be more security conscious in future.

Ferocious Kitten: 6 years of covert surveillance in Iran

Ferocious Kitten is an APT group that has been targeting Persian-speaking individuals in Iran. Some of the TTPs used by this threat actor are reminiscent of other groups, such as Domestic Kitten and Rampant Kitten. In this report we aim to provide more details on these findings.

Andariel evolves to target South Korea with ransomware

In April 2021, we observed a suspicious Word document with a Korean file name and decoy. It revealed a novel infection scheme and an unfamiliar payload. After a deep analysis, we came to a conclusion: the Andariel group was behind these attacks.

Operation TunnelSnake

A newly discovered rootkit that we dub ‘Moriya’ is used by an unknown actor to deploy passive backdoors on public facing servers, facilitating the creation of a covert C&C communication channel through which they can be silently controlled. The victims are located in Africa, South and South-East Asia.
