The Urgent Need for Network Security

Have you been suffering from frequent and costly data breaches recently? You’re not alone. The global cyber landscape has been plagued with ransomware and other attacks. In fact, as reported by the 2019 World Economic Forum, cyber attacks are one of the top 5 threats to global economic development. It’s not a matter of if it will happen to you, but when.

Government Procurement Services Targeted in Phishing Campaign

Researchers discovered a phishing campaign which attackers designed to harvest login credentials from government procurement services.According to Anomali Labs, malicious actors crafted their campaign to target various services used by public and private entities to match buyers and sellers of government services.They did so by directing recipients of specially crafted phishing emails to view an attached lure document. Each of those lure documents incorporated the language of the country hosting a targeted government organization.They also included an embedded link that ultimately redirected recipients to the spoofed websites for various government agencies, email service providers and courier services.Researchers found that each of the fake websites contained a Domain Validation (DV) certification issued by “cPanel, Inc.” and that their subdomains used a bidding theme to target organizations. As Anomali Labs described in its research:In the webpages there are clear emblems and labels detailing which organisation the attacker is attempting to mimic. The attackers have used legitimate domains as well as their own infrastructure. The webpage for the U.S. Department of Energy was hosted on “https://energy.gov.secure.server-bidsync[.]best/auth/login.html” and redirected from the URL: “http://energy.gov.secure.bidsync.newnepaltreks[.]com”. The redirect URL is based on a legitimate domain “newnepaltreks[.]com” which is likely to have been compromised in order to facilitate this attack.

Therefore, an attacker must do this as soon as the session opens.
