ICCYBER 2010

Greetings from beautiful Brasília, the capital of Brazil, with its unique architecture. I’m here for a few days to take part in the 7th International Conference on Cybercrime Investigation (ICCyber), promoted by the Brazilian Association of Specialists in High Technology (ABEAT). The event is being run in collaboration with the Brazilian Federal Police.

There are 800 attendees from law enforcement agencies around the world like Interpol, Europol, Scotland Yard, and several Federal Police agencies. Representatives from security companies, and Brazilian banks are here too – and we’re all talking about the fight against cybercrime.

We’re here to present our research on malware trends in the Latin America region, and also to reinforce our links with the police and banking communities.

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.

What did DeathStalker hide between two ferns?

While tracking DeathStalker’s Powersing-based activities in May 2020, we detected a previously unknown implant that leveraged DNS over HTTPS as a C2 channel, as well as parts of its delivery chain. We named this new malware “PowerPepper”.
