Researchers identify malware that can dismantle cloud security protections
on January 17, 2019 at 7:12 pm
A team of researchers have identified a new kind of malware that they say can remove cloud security products. Researchers from Palo Alto Networks’ Unit 42 said in a report released Thursday that the malware samples they obtained, which are used by a hacking group known as “Rocke,” showed that they could remove security products from compromised Linux cloud servers. The Rocke group seeks to mine cryptocurrency, and has apparently found ways to derail cloud protections that might otherwise detect their malware, the researchers found. The researchers determined that the malware would gain full control of the products, and then use the product’s main administrative control to uninstall them from the servers. The report states that products impacted by the malware were developed by two Chinese cloud computing providers that are expanding internationally: Tencent Cloud and Alibaba Cloud. The researchers wrote that those creating malware realized “the existing cloud monitor and security products may detect the possible malware intrusion” and are taking on “new evasion technologies to avoid being detected” by cloud security measures.

West African banks targeted in multi-wave attack | SC Media
on January 17, 2019 at 3:47 pm
Symantec said the attacks have been taking place since mid-2017 hitting financial institutions in Cameroon, Congo (DR), Ghana, Equatorial Guinea and Ivory Coast. The company noted attacking banks in these nations is somewhat outside the norm for cybercriminals, but noted expanding attacks into this region is likely another sign of the globalization of cybercrime. Any malware used was off-the-shelf, commodity malware: Cobalt Strike, Imminent Monitor RAT, NanoCore RAT, Remote Manipulator System RAT, and Mimikatz. The download maybe have used socially engineered documents and even a few tools similar to what was used in the 2017 SWIFT attacks which Symantec said could indicate the attackers were attempting to commit bank fraud. The second wave of attacks started later in 2017 hitting banks in Ivory Coast, Ghana, Congo (DR), and Cameroon. The fourth attack in December 2018 again targeted the Ivory Coast and used the Imminent Monitor RAT, but no further information on this were given by Symantec. […]
Telegram Bots Have Got A Major Problem, Security Researchers Warn
on January 17, 2019 at 3:44 pm
“Malware that uses Telegram as a command and control channel typically uses the Telegram Bot API for communications,” say the researchers. So, if Telegram bots are being used in channels that share private, confidential or valuable information, it could be seen by an attacker.” Security Labs advises that users concerned by this avoid using Telegram bots and don't use channels and groups in which a bot is present. “With regards to the GoodSender malware - or indeed any other malware using Telegram bots as a command and control mechanism - we recommend, as always, that users ensure they have robust malware protection in place.” More information about bots is available on the Telegram website. Bots are made by third-party developers using the Telegram Bot API. […]
