We Come in Peace, Too – Impressions from CCC’s 27C3 / Berlin

Since Monday, my colleagues and I have been attending the annual Chaos Communication Congress 27C3 in Berlin. For the past 27 years, the Chaos Computer Club has organised this four day conference for hackers from all over the world.

The sold-out event at Berlin’s bcc covers a wide range of topics, separated into six different tracks: Community, Culture, Hacking, Making, Science and Society. Take a look at what’s known as the Fahrplan or schedule.

All the talks are streamed and recorded. Check out the conference wiki.

Yesterday also marked the start of a new, CCC independent side event called BerlinSides, which focuses on infosec and is organised by Aluc.TV and SecurityBsides.com. This free event takes place at one of the oldest hackerspaces in the world, Berlin’s famous c-base.

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.
