Back on the road again

Developing a global presence – that’s far from an easy job. Traveling to different time zones, hopping from city to city, from hotel to hotel – although this might sound fund, it’s not relaxing. But from another point of view, it’s what has to be done to develop the company: listen to other’s points of view, present our position, educate users and develop markets. And on a personal note, it is interesting to have the opportunity to visit so many new places, meet so many new people and hear so many new accents.

Last week we started our trip over the East Cost with four presentations in Boston, and more than 150 people from the local IT industry attending. Right now I’m in the plane with others – Steve, Randy, Chris, John, Jennifer, Shannon and Darcie, enjoying the life 32000 feet above the ground. And with several cities behind us there are also several ahead of us.

If any of you want to drop in – we’ll be in Mexico soon!

Lazarus targets defense industry with ThreatNeedle

In mid-2020, we realized that Lazarus was launching attacks on the defense industry using the ThreatNeedle cluster, an advanced malware cluster of Manuscrypt (a.k.a. NukeSped). While investigating this activity, we were able to observe the complete life cycle of an attack, uncovering more technical details and links to the group’s other campaigns.

Sunburst backdoor – code overlaps with Kazuar

While looking at the Sunburst backdoor, we discovered several features that overlap with a previously identified backdoor known as Kazuar. Our observations shows that Kazuar was used together with Turla tools during multiple breaches in past years.

Lazarus covets COVID-19-related intelligence

As the COVID-19 crisis grinds on, some threat actors are trying to speed up vaccine development by any means available. We have found evidence that the Lazarus group is going after intelligence that could help these efforts by attacking entities related to COVID-19 research.

Sunburst: connecting the dots in the DNS requests

We matched private and public DNS data for the SUNBURST-malware root C2 domain with the CNAME records, to identify who was targeted for further exploitation. In total, we analyzed 1722 DNS records, leading to 1026 unique target name parts and 964 unique UIDs.
