Christmas brings many more people online since the Internet provides a quick and convenient way to buy Christmas gifts. This makes it the perfect time for cybercriminals to cash-in on online activity. So it’s also a good time for a reminder about the basic things you can do to reduce the risk of cybercriminals spoiling your Christmas.

 

  1. Install Internet security software and keep it updated.
  2. Keep Windows and other applications up-to-date.
  3. Backup your data regularly to a CD, DVD, or external USB drive.
  4. Don’t respond to email messages if you don’t know the sender.
  5. Don’t click on email attachments if you don’t know the sender.
  6. Don’t click on links in email or IM (instant messaging) messages. Type the address directly into your web browser.
  7. Don’t give out personal information in response to an email or other message, even if it looks official.
  8. Only shop, bank or socialise on secure sites. Make sure the URL starts with ‘https://’.
  9. Use a different password for each web site or service you use. Don’t recycle them (e.g. ‘jackie1’, ‘jackie2’). Don’t make them easy to guess (e.g. mum’s name, pet’s name). Don’t tell anyone your passwords.

Reports

APT trends report Q2 2021

This is our latest summary of advanced persistent threat (APT) activity, focusing on significant events that we observed during Q2 2021: attacks against Microsoft Exchange servers, APT29 and APT31 activities, targeting campaigns, etc.

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.

WildPressure targets the macOS platform

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.
