Cybersecurity: Why you should hire staff from firms which have fallen victim to hackers

www.zdnet.com/article/cybersecurity-why-you-should-hire-staff-from-firms-which-have-fallen-victim-to-hackers/ It used to be the case that staff who’d dealt with the fallout of a cyber attack were seen as having failed – but they could be the answer to protecting your organisation from data breaches and cyber incidents. Companies which fall victim to cyber attacks and data breaches often come in for criticism, but one the best things an organisation can do to ensure it remains protected against the impacts of a hacking incident is to take advantage of the expertise of cybersecurity professionals who’ve faced a major attack.

Leading Magecart Group Targeting Captive Wi-Fi Users via L7 Routers

securityintelligence.com/posts/leading-magecart-group-targeting-captive-wi-fi-users-via-l7-routers/ Threat hunters from IBM X-Force Incident Response and Intelligence Services (IRIS) identified malicious activity attributed to a financially motivated cybercrime faction known as Magecart 5 (MG5). Our research revealed that MG5 is likely testing malicious code designed for injection into benign JavaScript files loaded by commercial-grade layer 7 (L7) routers.

TrickBot or Treat Knocking on the Door and Trying to Enter

www.fortinet.com/blog/threat-research/trickbot-or-treat-threat-analysis.html? The FortiGuard SE Team discovered a particularly interesting targeted attack towards the end of August in Virus Total. The attack targeted a supplier for a distribution/logistics provider to a nation state. The email contained an attachment that appeared to have been sent by a company that manufactures and distributes electrical components and other parts, and has likely dealt at least once with the targeted organization via email. After analyzing its email headers, we were able to determine that the malicious spam legitimately came from the actual sender. We say legitimately because the malicious spam email came from the actual email account of the user, but without their knowledge or consent. The originating IP address (at the time of publication) was not blacklisted, and appears to have been leased out to a residential user of a major ISP located in the same jurisdiction as the manufacturers official place of business.
