This customer reached out to our cyber security consultants when they suffered a considerable financial loss after falling victim to a spear-phishing attack.
The attacker was able to gain access to the email platform and monitor the email flow and exfiltrate contacts of our customer. The attacker had been lurking in their Office 365 for months, reading emails and learning about their processes and partners. Once they had gained the required knowledge, they launched their simple but effective attack. Posing as one of our customer’s partners, they sent a spoof email requesting their bank account details to be changed and for funds to be transferred into the new account. The email was sent to the correct employee and was a good imitation of how the partner’s emails usually look. Acting as instructed, the employee changed the account details and transferred the funds.
Frequently Asked Questions
See our Incident Response (IR) frequently asked questions below for help and advice.
What is APT?
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are not unstoppable superviruses but the terminology instead describes the behavior of the attack. An APT attacker is patient and prepared to take their time to slowly penetrate your network. They don’t rush for the data and for this reason often go unnoticed for quite some time. They target a specific person or business for financial motivation or to cause damage to reputation.
What is ransomware?
Ransomware is a type of malware where access to your computer/data is locked until demands are met. Normally these demands are financial; in the form of cryptocurrency. The most common types of ransomware are screenlockers and encryption ransomware. Screenlockers deny you access to your computer and files. As the name suggests, encryption ransomware uses complex algorythyms to encrypt data on file. With sophisticated attacks, it’s not always possible to regain access to your data which is why it’s imperative to always have up to date back ups and advanced end point protection and response.
