Daily briefing.

Late yesterday Anomali issued a report on Mustang Panda, a Chinese government threat group that's probably operating against a distinct but extensive set of targets: people interested in UN Security Council resolutions concerning ISIL, MIAT Airlines (a Mongolian carrier), cultural exchange not-for-profit China-Zentrum e.V., the Communist Party of Vietnam, and Shan Tai Theravada Buddhists. Their conclusions about the targets are based on the nature of the phishbait. Mustang Panda was first identified by CrowdStrike in June of 2018.

Unpatched instances of the Drupal content management system continue to receive "Drupalgeddon2" attacks, Akamai warns.

The US NSA yesterday added its own warnings to those CISA and the UK's NCSC issued last week concerning the exploitation of older but still widely used VPNs by various international threat actors. NSA's notes include advice about mitigation.

Five US Republican Senators have written Microsoft President Brad Smith to tell him he's underestimating the security threat Huawei poses.

It's Patch Tuesday, and the usual round of updates are expected later today. One set of patches, however, won't appear. D-Link has decided not to patch its older home routers against a critical remote takeover vulnerability, Threatpost reports. Users should upgrade to new equipment instead. The affected routers, although still available as "new" from third-party vendors, are beyond their end-of-life.

The Internet Society has done a privacy audit of twenty-three US Presidential campaign sites and found seven of them worthy, those belonging to candidates Buttigieg, Harris, Klobuchar, O'Rourke, Sanders, Trump, and Williamson. The other sixteen? Sorry, no bueno.


Today's issue includes events affecting Australia, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, Germany, Iran, Mongolia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Pakistan, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States, and Vietnam.

Bring your own context.

On the interpenetration of government and criminal hacking: sometimes crooks become contractors.

"One of the big distinct things about APT41 is the fact that it's conducting both financially motivated cybercrime operations alongside and simultaneously with the cyber espionage campaigns. So, usually with the Chinese espionage groups, they tend to do just the nation-state stuff. If they're doing anything on the side, it's quite a bit separate. But in the case of APT41, there's a lot of overlap between these two worlds within a single group. So, that includes the timing – they're conducting both the financially motivated activity as well as the espionage activity often on the same day, and long-running campaigns running at the same time – but also in terms of the tools they're using.... We think that this group – they have a strong personal interest in the video game industry, and a lot of what they are doing in the financially motivated world is targeted against the video game industry. So a lot of their earlier operations are concentrated against not just video game studios and developers, but also payment platforms and online forums and other related services that are part of the world of video gaming. And a lot of the operations that they're conducting and how they're conducting these operations – the TTPs – will often emerge first in their targeting of video game organizations and then later kind of bleed over into the espionage activities that they're also doing."

—Fred Plan, Senior Analyst on FireEye's Cyber Espionage Threat Intelligence Team, on the CyberWire's Research Saturday, 10.5.19.

Does this lead to any speculation that, you know, they got their start doing non-government type of work and perhaps they caught the government's eye and they said, hey, you guys are doing some interesting work here – how'd you like to come work for us? Is that a possibility or is that just purely speculative?

"It is a possibility, and in fact, we have research dating back to at least 2005, indicating that individuals who were responsible for this activity were advertising hacker-for-hire services. So they were saying they were available for hacking into system networks, and we believe that that was probably in a contractor capacity."

—Nalani Fraser, Senior Manager of the Advanced Analysis Team for FireEye Threat Intelligence, also speaking on the CyberWire's Research Saturday, 10.5.19.

And they go on the government payroll without having to give up their night job, too.

The correct name of the JTF Ares campaign against ISIS is Operation Glowing Symphony, not, as misstated in the 9.27.19 podcast, "Golden Symphony."

Federal cloud market projected for major growth.

According to Coalfire’s latest report on FedRAMP, U.S. agencies spent $6.5B in cloud services in FY2018, an impressive 32 percent year-over-year increase, with the vast majority of Federal cloud migration still to come. SaaS/PaaS/IaaS providers can gain access to this market with significantly less investment in both time and cost by taking advantage of automation and recent FedRAMP program updates. Learn how.
