How do you protect yourself?

Your organization should enact a credential monitoring program to be alerted when important credentials leak onto the dark web. Services like Secure IT – User Defence continuously scans the dark web for credential leaks and also train end-users on best cybersecurity practices.

Nefilim Ransomware

Toll Group, an Australian transportation company said its systems had been targeted by a new form of ransomware called Nefilim. The company that operates across 50 countries, detected unusual activity on some of its servers, which led to delays to customers. The hackers behind Nefilim gain access through vulnerable Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) servers, like other types of ransomware, namely Nemty, Crysis and SamSam.

How do you protect yourself?

Attacks via Remote Desktop Protocol servers are widespread these days. In order to prevent them, organizations should enable 24/7 monitoring and remediation solutions. Services like Endpoint Protection and SIEM (Security Information & Event Management) help avoid or at least isolate these attacks from spreading.

Cisco WebEx Phishing

A series of phishing attacks are targeting Cisco WebEx users by using fake certificate error warnings. These phishing emails include graphics and formatting similar to communications sent by Cisco WebEx to users. Users are requested to click on a hyperlink to unlock their accounts and are then redirected to a phishing credential site.

How do you protect yourself?

Users should be cautious whenever clicking links suggesting they need to unlock their accounts. Services like Secure IT – Mail help scan the links within emails to detect if they are legitimate or not. If they are not legitimate, these tools will block users from even visiting the malicious website.
