Information Security Day

I’ve just returned from Budapest, after attending and presenting at the Information Security Day (ITBN) conference. Now in its second year, this event has gained quite a bit of popularity in Hungary, receiving attention from both the people working in the IT industry, the press and of course, end users.

It’s a pity that events like this aren’t more popular in other countries as well – judging by the massive participation (more than 1000 registered visitors), there is obvious interest in how to make our beloved computers more secure.

PS: If you understand Hungarian, you can find a short interview I gave to InfoRadio here.

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.
