Short 🧵on Trickbot. Vitaly Kovalev's (aka "Bentley") indictment was originally filed 13 years go. It shows: 1) He was ID'd IRL long ago 2) Name and shame is now favored and 3) Maybe more old sealed indictments will be released? #infosec
US alleges Trickbot actors "are associated with Russian Intelligence Services." Conti leaks and other tidbits and data over the years pointed to potential ties between the state and cybercriminals.… #infosec
It's also interesting that the indictment against Kovalev is for alleged banking and fraud crimes from the era before ransomware really took off. I wonder why they didn't release a fresh indictment related to Conti? #infosec #trickbot

Interesting #maldoc
#TrickBot is distributed using a maldoc that uses #Emotet Template:

- It drops a small dll (1.xml) and executes its by creating an Outlook instance that calls rundll to execute 1.xml
- Drops a PS file and executes it

ICYMI, @PwC_UK’s 2020 #threatintel Year in Retrospect report is out now! All team contributed but h/t to @KystleM_Reid! :fire: You can check it out here: In this thread, I will summarise some of what I thought were key findings: 🧵👇 1/n
#Ransomware has become the most significant cyber security threat faced by organisations, irrespective of industry/location. TTPs have pivoted to mass data exfiltration prior to encryption, along with leaks & extortion. S/o to @andyp346 for all your work countering this.🙏 2/n
In 2020, 86% of the incidents that PwC’s Incident Response team responded to were attributable to cyber criminals. 79% of leaks happened in 2nd half of 2020. Our data sees Manufacturing, TMT, & Professional Services most impacted. 3/n

Happening NOW! You can still join us here, and I'll be live-tweeting what @Robert_Lipovsky and @adorais share.… Image
.@Robert_Lipovsky kicking off with something I believe as well...crimeware is a greater threat to most orgs than state-sponsored threats. Even this week!
Many cyber crimes involve different jurisdictions - rarely is adversary infrastructure all in the same country, so law enforcement and private industry have to cooperate globally.

2020-12-03:🔥 And ... [Major Discovery] 🤖"Persist, Brick, Profit -#TrickBot Offers New “#TrickBoot” UEFI-Focused Functionality"

🆕*First* Time Crimeware Group Pursued UEFI Firmware Exploitation | #YARA+IOCs in MISP JSON/CSV

@eclypsium | @IntelAdvanced…

1⃣TrickBoot is only one line of code away from being able to brick any device it finds to be vulnerable.
2⃣Historically, TrickBot actors have needed to evade and persist at the OS level - now a chance at UEFI level.
3⃣Actors are going lower in the stack to avoid detection.
✅Evolution of criminal intent:

⚓️Deep persistence achieved via UEFI/BIOS level to survive long-term on the host

⚡️New Incident Response Paradigm Shift:

*Firmware integrity checks might be particularly important for device that is known to have been compromised by TrickBot.*

I've shared here:
@anyrun_app @virusbay_io I think this fresh sample uses the old CMSTPLUA UAC bypass from @hFireF0X:… (blast from the past!)
Personally, I haven't done much #Trickbot binary triage - so I don't know how/what else to extract (like configs, campaign codes).

Based on the evidence published, some bullets in Everis case:

#Ryuk not was involved, the ransome note is different.

#Ryuk/#Bitpaymer take long time to been deployed.

#Ryuk has been saw in combination of #Emotet->#Trickbot.

Today we’re seeing a massive "Incoming transfer" spam campaign. The email body is blank, but the attachment is a document with malicious PowerShell that connects to malicious URLs to download a new variant of banking Trojan #Totbrick (#Trickbot). Image
Microsoft Word opens the document in Protected View, hence the instructions to "unlock the document" by clicking "Enable Editing". Don't! (SHA-256: 12dbd0cba4d5caf353f57a5d31ebb14d56d71ff410d58ef69391724ffef3002f, 7ea2df3db0c33dcca5a5634d6433f42d0ea4d9e0a23b865f27b39994cc20c4a3) Image
Windows Defender AV detects and blocks the document as TrojanDownloader:O97M/Powdow.KE. The payload is detected and blocked as Trojan:Win32/Totbrick (SHA-256: fc259872826dbe0cf623abbb2e886e4d877641add6d41b0121c121ade916c446)

As researchers like @dvk01uk noted, multiple spam campaigns are delivering malicious document attachments that exploit several vulnerabilities to install banking trojan #Trickbot. The spam emails spoof several banks, including Barclays and Scotiabank. ImageImage
The attachment is a malicious .docx file that exploits CVE-2017-0199 to download a malicious .rtf, which in turn exploits CVE-2017-8570 to drop a malicious PowerShell, and CVE-2017-11882 to run the said PowerShell, which downloads #Trickbot. ImageImage
Protected view can prevent automatic execution of malicious documents. Office365 ATP blocks the malicious emails. Windows Defender AV blocks malicious documents and payload. Attack surface reduction in Windows Defender Exploit Guard can also help protect.…
