B:Secure (Mexico) – A good start for fighting cybercrime

Last week I attended one of the most important IT security conferences in Latin America – B:Secure. Five different AV vendors participated in it.

The event took place in Mexico and Kaspersky Lab provided information about the current underground business model and why the cybercriminals are so keen to find new victims.

We also participated in a panel discussion with some of the region’s most noted experts, where we discussed cloud computing, mobile attacks and other conventional security issues.

On this occasion, representatives from the cybercrime units of various law enforcement agencies were on hand to join in the discussion. I strongly believe that only through the joint efforts of customers, governments and IT security vendors can we reduce the number of successful cyber-attacks against citizens worldwide.

The complete agenda in Spanish can be found here:

LuminousMoth APT: Sweeping attacks for the chosen few

We recently came across unusual APT activity that was detected in high volumes, albeit most likely aimed at a few targets of interest. Further analysis revealed that the actor, which we dubbed LuminousMoth, shows an affinity to the HoneyMyte group, otherwise known as Mustang Panda.

We found new malware samples used in WildPressure campaigns: newer version of the C++ Milum Trojan, a corresponding VBScript variant with the same version number, and a Python script working on both Windows and macOS.

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.
