Could your organization withstand an attack by the master hacking operation known as "Fxmsp"? Hollywood loves to portray hackers as having ninja-like skills. But Fxmsp often favored the simplest tools for the job, because they so often worked. Defenders: Take note.
The operators behind an updated version of the FakeSpy malware are targeting Android devices using SMS phishing messages to spread the info stealer, according to Cybereason. The messages are designed to appear to come from postal and delivery services.
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission has officially designated China's Huawei Technologies and ZTE Corp. as "national security threats," barring American telecommunications firms from using certain federal funds to buy their equipment, such as for building 5G networks.
Is the Fxmsp hacking operation still in business? Experts say Fxmsp earned $1.5 million in illicit profits, thanks to a botnet-based business model that enabled the group to sell remote access to hacked networks. But then it advertised source code allegedly stolen from three anti-virus vendors.
How long does it take to become a reliable, trusted seller in the cybercrime-as-a-service ecosystem? For the Fxmsp hacking collective, experts say the answer is about a year. The group built a botnet that facilitated network intrusions and data exfiltration, but it was driven off cybercrime forums.
