Red October – Indicators of compromise

Since our announcement about “Red October”, we’ve received a lot of questions on how to quickly identify compromised systems.

That’s why together with our partner Alienvault we’ve decided to put together a small whitepaper for CERTs and system administrators which can help identify and mitigate the attack.

The small whitepaper includes summarized information about malware’s known locations in infected systems, command and control domains and servers, snort rules, RC4 encryption keys, passwords and an industry standard IOC file with all these informations.

At the moment, our sinkhole is still registering traffic from 36 infected victims in several countries. We hope the information will help CERTs and admins to successfully identify and eradicate the infections.

Lyceum group reborn

According to older public researches, Lyceum conducted operations against organizations in the energy and telecommunications sectors across the Middle East. In 2021, we have been able to identify a new cluster of the group’s activity, focused on two entities in Tunisia.

GhostEmperor: From ProxyLogon to kernel mode

While investigating a recent rise of attacks against Exchange servers, we noticed a recurring cluster of activity that appeared in several distinct compromised networks. With a long-standing operation, high profile victims, advanced toolset and no affinity to a known threat actor, we decided to dub the cluster GhostEmperor.
