More on safe browsing

Firefox 1.0 Just at the time three variants of Bofra (previously detected by us as Mydoom) started spreading thanks to a brand new exploit in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Mozilla Foundation released version 1.0 of Firefox, their free Internet browser.

With IE becoming more and more complex, filled with tons of undocumented features (read bugs) and being the number one target for malware developers worldwide, now may be a really good time to try an alternative – if you haven’t already.

From this point of view, Firefox seems to be a nice replacement. At least until major vulnerabilities start to be found in it as well.

You can download Firefox 1.0 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.
