Microsoft’s Windows warning: Hackers hijacked software updater with in-memory malware (ZDNet)

Posted on: 2017-05-05

Microsoft has shown how Windows Defender ATP detected anomalous updater behavior. Image: Microsoft Microsoft is warning software vendors to protect their updater processes after discovering a "well-planned, finely orchestrated" attack that hijacked an unnamed editing tool's software supply chain.As Microsoft's threat response group explains, the attackers used the update mechanism of a popular but unnamed piece of editing software to gain a foothold in several high-profile technology and financial organizations. The software vendor itself was also under attack, it says. The espionage campaign, dubbed WilySupply by Microsoft, is likely to be financially motivated and target updaters to reach mostly finance…

Microsoft says: Lock down your software supply chain before the malware scum get in (The Register)

Posted on: 2017-05-05

Microsoft's security team is urging developers to shore up their software update systems – after catching miscreants hijacking an editing application's download channels to inject malware into victims' PCs. In a security advisory, Redmond's infosec gurus describe Operation WilySupply: their mission to find, isolate and destroy an unusual and highly targeted form of malicious code that was hiding in the software update mechanism of a widely used, and unnamed, editing tool. Microsoft thinks that the attackers found a flaw in the application's upgrade system that allowed them to send unsigned updates to Windows machines to install. A 132-byte binary called…

Windows Defender ATP thwarts Operation WilySupply software supply chain cyberattack

Posted on: 2017-05-04

Several weeks ago, the Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (Windows Defender ATP) research team noticed security alerts that demonstrated an intriguing attack pattern. These early alerts uncovered a well-planned, finely orchestrated cyberattack that targeted several high-profile technology and financial organizations. An unknown attacker was taking advantage of a silent yet effective attack vector: the compromised update mechanism or software supply chain for a third-party editing tool. The software vendor that develops the editing tool was unaware of the issue. In fact, while their software supply chain served as a channel for attacking other organizations, they themselves were also under attack.…

To SDB, Or Not To SDB: FIN7 Leveraging Shim Databases for Persistence

Posted on: 2017-05-03

In 2017, Mandiant responded to multiple incidents we attribute to FIN7, a financially motivated threat group associated with malicious operations dating back to 2015. Throughout the various environments, FIN7 leveraged the CARBANAK backdoor, which this group has used in previous operations. A unique aspect of the incidents was how the group installed the CARBANAK backdoor for persistent access. Mandiant identified that the group leveraged an application shim database to achieve persistence on systems in multiple environments. The shim injected a malicious in-memory patch into the Services Control Manager (“services.exe”) process, and then spawned a CARBANAK backdoor process. Mandiant identified that…

Carbanak Hackers Refine Intrusion Tactics (SecurityWeek)

Posted on: 2017-05-03

The prolific Carbanak crime group has refined its intrusion strategy and expanded its arsenal of tools used in attacks, a new Trustwave report reveals. The Carbanak group, also known as Anunak, was exposed in 2015 after it managed to steal an estimated $1 billion from more than 100 banks across 30 countries. In early 2016, the group continued to target banks, mainly in the Middle East and U.S. In November last year, Trustwave observed a campaign targeting organizations in the hospitality sector where Carbanak hackers would call customer service saying they couldn’t make a reservation and requested to send information…
