Threat Hunting Guide: 3 Must-Haves for the Effective Modern Threat Hunter
The threat hunting landscape is constantly evolving. Learn the techniques, tactics, and tools needed to become a highly-effective threat hunter.
Sophisticated, well-funded, and highly targeted cyber threat campaigns, many backed by adversarial foreign national governments, are targeting U.S businesses like never before. RiskIQ researchers have just uncovered another such campaign, and it’s a big one.
Widespread and well-orchestrated, this latest campaign uses commercially available marketing tools to launch phishing attacks against potentially hundreds of organizations, many of which deal with gift cards. This cyber threat group’s activities initially surfaced when investigative journalist Brian Krebs reported on the breach of IT supplier Wipro on his website Krebs on Security, explaining how Wipro’s IT systems were compromised and used to attack the company’s customers. However, RiskIQ data pointed to this cyber attack being far from an isolated incident.
In our latest Intelligence report named “Gift Cardsharks,” RiskIQ shows how the campaign is, in reality, a far-ranging assault that exceeds the compromised infrastructure of Wipro and involves a long list of targets dating back to 2016. Although attribution cannot be confirmed, the group’s numerous concurrent cyber attacks display hallmarks of some state-sponsored activity including specific infrastructure, impressive organization, and, likely, a financial motive.
Using our vast collection grid and unique external view of cyber threat actor operations, RiskIQ can piece together a more complete picture of this actor group and their cyber attack campaigns, tools, and possible motives. This report is by no means a comprehensive analysis but builds a detailed narrative of widely-reported events.
Infrastructure overlap in PDNS, WHOIS, and SSL certificate data sets allowed RiskIQ to build out a more comprehensive understanding of actor-owned infrastructure, possible targets, and a timeline of the cyber attack campaigns. This report is an analysis of these campaigns, their operators, and their targets.
