Killnet Increases Attacks on US Organizations

By Editorial Team on Dec 20, 2022 9:34:13 AM

Throughout the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the pro-Russian hacktivist group Killnet has captured the attention of cybersecurity experts. Killnet originally began as a DDoS botnet service. In January 2022, a threat actor posted an advertisement for the Killnet botnet in Duplikat, a dark web forum for carding, botnets, and other illegal activities. According to the ad, the botnet allowed users to direct traffic without the target’s knowledge. It also claimed that the botnet uses the latest WEB3 technology and that the data is stored throughout the Blockchain. Since January, the nationalist group has targeted pro-Ukrainian countries and organizations in a slew of attacks and experienced organizational shake-up after their leader left

Third-Party Attacks on Critical Infrastructure

By Editorial Team on Dec 15, 2022 9:27:18 AM

Third-party and supply chain attacks have plagued organizations for years, and the attacks keep on coming. These attacks happen when threat actors gain access to your organization’s systems through a third-party, such as a supplier or vendor. Just a few weeks ago, we saw a third-party cyber attack on LastPass that affected GoTo, a remote access and collaboration organization. As a security-focused organization, it may have surprised many that they were impacted, but third-party attacks don’t discriminate.

Inside the Mind of a Cyber Criminal

By Editorial Team on Dec 14, 2022 9:00:00 AM

Cyber criminals have a longstanding reputation of being loners who work out of their mom's basement with hoodies on, but cyber analysts know this isn't the case. Over the last decade, cyber experts have observed an uptick of cyber crime-as-a-service, in which criminals operate in larger, business-like crime units. But what if cyber criminals have a personality profile that organizations can look out for?

Mitigating ICS and SCADA Vulnerabilities

By Editorial Team on Nov 30, 2022 9:10:12 AM

Our nation’s critical infrastructure is vital to our day-to-day lives. Encompassing 16 sectors, critical infrastructure spans transportation, manufacturing, utilities, and more. When we think of threats to infrastructure, natural disasters immediately come to mind, but cybersecurity incidents have the same potential for destruction, including interrupting manufacturing, supply chain availability, and other vital functions. Manufacturing currently contributes $2.7 trillion to the US economy, contributing heavily to GDP (gross domestic product), job growth, and more. Manufacturers are one of the main user groups of ICS (industrial control systems) and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) technologies.

Election Security in the Midterms

By Editorial Team on Nov 15, 2022 9:34:21 AM

During the midterm elections, national news was seemingly quiet about election interference from foreign powers, but that doesn’t mean there were no incidents. Election interference, especially the cyber variety, doesn’t always come on the day of the election. Whether counties or localities suffered DDoS attacks, wi-fi outages, or other cybersecurity attacks, it can all be chalked up to election interference. Here are a few of the incidents that GroupSense analysts were tracking during last Tuesday's election monitoring.
