Iran-linked hackers Agrius deploying new ransomware against Israeli orgs

An Iran-linked advanced persistent threat #APT group is using new #ransomware while targeting a familiar adversary in the Middle East, researchers have found.

#Iran #CyberAttack…
"Check Point’s Incident Response Team investigated the deployment of the ransomware against #Israeli organizations and claimed by a group dubbing itself Moneybird."
"Researchers found that it bore the hallmarks of Agrius, a #hacker group that has been around since 2020 and has attempted to disguise itself with aliases like BlackShadow."

A class 12 passout, former security officer and self taught cybergeek from Hyderabad, Shrinivas Rao Dadi, masterminded a nationwide cyberfraud with a turnover of Rs 3 crore a day. The money was being converted into #cryptocurrency and sent to #China. So, how did he do it? Image
There was a hierarchy to how the scamsters operated. Some of them called up citizens, posing as policemen and flashing fake ID cards, over WhatsApp and Skype. Women were targetted the most. In Delhi, one of the scamsters made a video call to a woman, dressed in a khaki uniform.
The victims were told that a parcel he/she had sent by courier was found containing drugs. The terrified victims were deceived into downloading apps, such as Anydesk, that provided the scamster with remote access to his phone screen.

This awesome write up from @datadictum for @TheRegister deserves reading

The tech is just as broken as everything else in the NHS…

@SteveBarclay take note!
@datadictum @TheRegister @SteveBarclay Just reading the report of the review published by GSST:

'Learning and accountability – This review has been about understanding fully and learning all lessons from the events that took place.

The Trust must be accountable for acting upon those lessons without fear or favour.'
@datadictum @TheRegister @SteveBarclay Anyone know whom was the then CTO at GSST?

"Since 2014, Ukraine was testing ground for cyber warfare and included multiple forms of attacks. Prominent was the 2015-2016 attack on power grids. This was among a small selection of attacks that disrupted physical systems in Western Ukraine,": @shakirov2036 #RussiaUkraineWar
"In Russia, there was no discussion of cyber security consequences if a war starts. Ukraine faced various attacks including viper attacks, and multiple government websites were defaced. This attack impacted provision of financial & govt services to public,": @shakirov2036

BREAKING: There are at least 2 separate hacking campaigns going on & focusing in on the #Twitter blue checkmark verification process. One appears to be #phishing based and another far more nefarious .. and possibly a state actor using Twitter DMs. More shortly. Be alert #infosec
All political candidates running & in office are typically Twitter verified (blue checkmark). Most major journalists are as well. This is a HUGE target 4 a #cyberattack by a nation state actor. This campaign which is still under the radar is very worrisome
Liz @lizthegrey has done greaat work on this. Its not clear how widespread this is but it has some very concerning network indicators. And its significantly more sophisticated than the phishing email that is going around. #infosec #phishing #cybersecurity #malware #Election2022

This is your forewarning. #TikTok has reportedly suffered a #data #breach, and if true there may be fallout from it in the coming days. We recommend you change your TikTok #password and enable Two-Factor Authentication, if you have not done so already.

🔴As Mr. @Amr_Thabet always says nothing is better than studying the real attacks, it's what we are trying to protect companies from after all
🧵In this thread we will learn how to study those attacks
#CyberAttack #CyberSecurity #redteaming #Pentesting
🔴Why you should study the real cyber-attacks?
Because they usually use their own tools and malware so it doesn't have a signature, and because that's what we are trying to protect companies from
now let's see how can we study those attacks?
🔴How can we study the real attacks?
By reading blogs and by simulating those attacks on your home lab

In 2022, #Sandworm hackers targeted two waves of attacks towards an oblenergo. The same attack from the same organization in 2015 made #Ukraine️ the first country in the world that suffered a powerful blackout due to a #cyberattack #cyberwar
The #cyberattacks were being attempted constantly since mid-February. Overall, since the full-scale war began there have been about 50 attacks that could have left a massive number of civilians without electricity. #Ukraine #UkraineRussianWar #WARINUKRAINE #cyberwar
But thanks to our experience, this time we were better prepared. The #cyberattack meant to cause a power outage on April 8th was successfully deterred, even though #russianhackers used more advanced tools. #Ukraine️

Sonam Kapoor’s father-in-law's company was cheated out of ₹27 Crore!

Shahi Exports Pvt. Ltd., an apparel manufacturing and exporting company run by actor Sonam Kapoor’s father-in-law Harish Ahuja, has recently been a victim of a highly sophisticated cybercrime.
Approximately ₹27 Crore was stolen from the company by a gang of cybercriminals who were busted by police in Faridabad, Haryana.

The fraudsters operated by misappropriating the firm’s ROSCTL licences with the help of Ahuja’s forged Digital Signature Certificate.
ROSCTL (Rebate of State and Central Taxes and Levies) licences are incentives given by the government to export-import firms and are similar to digital coupons worth several lakh rupees.

Thoughts on how we got here in #Ukraine, what is happening, & what we in the #EU & #NATO need 2 do now

#thread 🧵1/n

Bon courage 2 all #Ukrainian friends & citizens

Admiration 4 journalists on the ground - stay safe

Understanding for #Russian citizens who did not want war
First we need to hang our head in shame. The US was explicit in intelligence readouts saying what has happened would happen. So it's not like we were not warned.

From early December onwards the playbook #Russia has followed was clearly laid out and this was brushed off lightly!
The unified stance of #EU member states, #NATO and the #US looked good, but only because we had been pathetic.

#Russia has been very successful in infiltrating western democracies.

Russian footprints all over, especially on the far right, right, and the @GOP especially #Trump

UPDATE: #Ukraine #CyberAttack

Statements by the Ukrainian authorities on the cyberattack on Feb 15: (source: @mintsyfra)

"The attack was coordinated. We are facing completely unprecedented attacks."

"The purpose of this attack was to sow panic and destabilize the situation."
"The cost of the attack was millions of dollars but there were no financial losses of any Ukrainians."

"As of today, the systems of Privatbank and Oschadbank are working stably, despite the attack continues. Currently, Oschadbank has about a million requests (DDoS)..."
"Wee see a trace of foreign intel services. There are some similarities between this attacks and those of January 14... Wee see similarities in the infra used then."

"We cannot confirm the information that Russian hackers have broken into Ukraine's critical infra networks.."
