Customer Spotlight: Travel Service Takes Cybersecurity to a Whole New Place

Schauinsland-Reisen, an independent travel agency based in Duisburg, Germany, is the seventh largest package tour operator in Germany and currently offers travel services to over 60 traveldestinations.

Evolution of SamSa Malware Suggests New Ransomware Tactics In Play

Ransomware is often in the headlines as new families are discovered on an almost weekly basis. Historically, these families have shared one similarity – they have all been deployed by attackers casting a wide net and largely being victim-agnostic. In most cases, the adversaries have used phishing emails and exploit kits in a ‘spray and pray’ style tactic. However, in recent months, a new trend seems to be emerging: targeted attacks where ransomware is deployed by threat actors after successfully gaining unauthorized access to an organization’s network. One malware family …

Campaign Evolution: Darkleech to Pseudo-Darkleech and Beyond

In 2015, Sucuri published two blog posts, one in March describing a pseudo-Darkleech campaign targeting WordPress sites, and another about its evolution the following December. Sites compromised by this campaign redirected unsuspecting users to an exploit kit (EK). The Sucuri posts describe patterns in the injected script related to this campaign. Since December 2015, patterns associated with pseudo-Darkleech have continued to evolve. Our blog post today will examine these changes. However, before we look at the recent developments, we should understand how EKs fit into the overall picture and review …

Architecture Matters

Every year, record levels of money are spent on new IT security technology – yet major breaches and compromises are more prevalent than ever. The concept of “layered security” – in which an organization supports a wide variety of security technologies in order to discourage attackers – doesn’t seem to be working. It’s time to rethink IT security – not just the technology, but the way it’s approached from a strategic, architectural perspective.

Locky Ransomware Installed Through Nuclear EK

In February 2016, Unit 42 published detailed analysis of Locky ransomware. We certainly weren’t the only ones who saw this malware, and many others have also reported on it. Since that time, Locky has been frequently noted in various campaigns using malicious spam (malspam) to spread this relatively new strain of ransomware. When we initially reported on Locky, attackers were distributing the malware using Microsoft Office documents with malicious macros to download and execute the ransomware. Attackers quickly added another tactic, sending e-mails with zip attachments containing malicious Javascript files …
