As cryptocurrencies become more valuable, cybercriminals are upping their game to try to make a healthy profit out of their unwilling victims. This week, the SonicWall Capture Labs Threat Research Team has received reports of a malicious android app which turns your mobile device into a cryptocurrency mining slave.
Cisco Prime Network Analysis Module (NAM) is a network management software that allows network administrators with multifaceted visibility to help optimize network resources, troubleshoot performance issues, and deliver a consistent enduser experience.
SonicWall has analyzed and addressed Microsoft’s security advisories for the month of December, 2017. A list of issues reported, along with SonicWall coverage information are as follows:
The SonicWall Capture Labs Threat Research Team observed reports of a new variant family of Cxor Malware [Cxor.A] actively spreading in the wild.
The Malware gathers confidential information from the computer such as login details, passwords; financial information sends it to its own C&C Server.
The SonicWall Capture Labs Threat Research Team has conducted an experimental dialog with a ransomware operator using the PayDay ransomware trojan. PayDay, is a recent variant of the BTCWare ransomware trojan and has been in the wild for a few weeks. PayDay follows the current ransomware operator trend of using email to communicate with their victims in order to demand payment for file decryption. Payment has increased to an astronomical 0.5 Bitcoins (roughly $8000 USD at today’s prices). In this case however, the price could be negotiated lower.
Everyone is gearing up for the Thanksgiving weekend. While consumers take advantage of retailers’ pre-Black Friday deals which have started earlier and earlier in recent years, cybercriminals are also trying to get an early leg-up on the holiday shopping.
The SonicWall Capture Labs Threat Research Team has observed that this year is no different. Cybercriminals are shopping for your personal data as more consumers turn to online shopping. The statistics we have gathered for this year indicates that users who shop on Amazon online has more than doubled as compared to last year.
The JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is a subscription-based/open-source Java EE-based application server runtime platform used for building, deploying, and hosting highly-transactional Java applications and services.
With the holiday shopping season in full swing, cybercriminals are taking advantage of the fact that consumers are expected to shop for great deals over the next few weeks. During this Cyber sales week, the SonicWall Capture Labs Threat Research Team has spotted a specially crafted document file pretending to be a coupon that will save you big bucks on all items with major online retailers like amazon, ebay and aliexpress. In this infection, multiple levels of scripts are being executed and downloaded to carry on the full attack.
