Adobe Flash Player Zero-Days Used by Hackers Linked to Russian Government

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Researchers from antivirus provider Trend Micro said in a blog post published on Tuesday that the attackers behind Pawn Storm are using a new Adobe Flash zero-day exploit in their latest campaign. TrendMicro has been monitoring the campaign for a few time. Several Ministries of Foreign Affairs have been attacked using the leak. Those emails contain links to websites hosting the exploit, and so when a user with flash installed clicks on the link, the malware is installed on their computer. The phishing mails have subjects such as “Suicide vehicle bomb targets North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troop convoy Kabul”, “Syrian troops make gains as Putin defends airstrikes”, “Israel launches airstrikes on targets in Gaza”, “Russia warns of response to reported USA nuke buildup in Turkey, Europe” and “US military reports 75 US-trained rebels return Syria”. “Foreign affairs ministries have become a particular focus of interest for Pawn Storm recently”, added the firm. Besides malware attacks, fake Outlook Web Access (OWA) servers were also established for various ministries, which are used for simple, but very effective, credential phishing attacks. Trend Micro suggests that one ministry found that its DNS settings for incoming email had been compromised as a result. The CVE-2015-5569 […]

Rocket Kitten Hacking Group Linked to Iranian Government by Security Researchers

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Group targets individuals, private businesses, academic institutes, and state departments in equal measure Trend Micro and ClearSky security firms have put out a joint, detailed paper in which theyDOCUMENT the actions of an APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) group they believe is linked to the Iranian government. Their research paints the picture of an APT group that started hacking strategic targets in foreign governments, academic institutions, and above all, targets located in Israel. From April 2014 to this last June, Trend Micro and ClearSky experts analyzed information collected by other cyber-security agencies (iSIGHT and FireEye) and their own data and reached the conclusion that the APT group they’ve dubbed Rocket Kitten has ties to the Iranian government in some form or another. Their conclusion stems from a series of incidents from mid-2015, when Dr. Thamar E. Gindin and a ClearSky researcher became the targets of this group. Dr. Ginding, an expert in Iranian linguistics and pre-Islamic Iran, lecturer, and research fellow at the Ezri Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Research at the University of Haifa, aided ClearSky researchers with their Thamar Reservoir security research paper, which studied the Rocket Kitten group’s hacking activities in countries of the Middle East. Rocket […]

murder

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

DENVER — A 25-year-old man with a lengthy criminal history is in jail, facing charges for three shootings in two days, including a shooting of a dog. Investigators say all three cases were linked and solved thanks to the technology used by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Denver Police Department to track shell casings used in shootings, along with the special task force assigned to investigate those cases, the Crime Gun Intelligence Center. RELATED: Crime fighting 2.0: A new way of solving shooting cases Anthony Dennis was arrested for the last one on Jan. 29, where he allegedly shot at a man. Investigators say shell casings from that shooting, as well as the two earlier crimes, make Dennis the alleged shooter in all three cases. The gun was never recovered. THE TIMELINE: 3 SHOOTINGS IN 2 DAYS Court records show the alleged crime spree began and was first reported on Jan. 27 in the 3300 block of North Milwaukee Street. According to investigators, the victim heard the suspect trying to open her back door. The victim yelled that she was going to call the police. Investigators say the man, later identified as Dennis, walked away […]
