Latest news: March 24th, 2015 - Rocket Kitten GHOLE Attack Returns With Keyloggers
March 24th, 2015
Rocket Kitten, the cyberattack group that recently launched an email malware campaign against European and Israeli targets, has delivered a new state-sponsored attack, according the a report by Trend Micro.
As DFI News previously reported, Gadi Evronand and Tillman Werner explained at the 31th Chaos Communication Congress that email attachments delivered macros with the GHOLE malware. The Ghole malware being a modified version of CORE IMPACT, a sophisticated penetration-testing tool from CORE — a company that develops legal software.
As with the previous attack, user participation was needed to execute macros in a file. In one instance, a spear-phishing email was sent to an Israeli target, which directed to a Microsoft OneDrive link. "Once executed, the file drops a nonmalicious PowerPoint file used as a decoy file, while silently infecting the system with a variant of the CWoolger keylogger," the report explains.
"Cybercriminals quite often forget about metadata, which is generated by the software they use to produce or modify the files. Those who are more meticulous alter this information to lead investigators to false tracks," the report states.
But this attacker was not that sophisticated. The nickname Wool3nh4t was found to own an inactive blog hosted by a free service in Iran and was registered in several underground hacking forums. The blog only contained two posts signed by Masoud_pk, which could be part of the real identity of Wool3nh4t. Masoud is the one of the top 50 commonly used first names in Iran, the report added.
Beacause of the nick name, Wool3nh4t, and the use of GHOLE malware phishing, the attack was named "Operation Woolen-GoldFish."
The researchers found in files collected from Rocket Kitten that they targeted entities in the defense industry, IT sector and different academic and government entities.
Operation Woolen-GoldFish has managed to successfully infiltrate several companies and organizations in Israel and Europe. The authors, Cedric Pernet and Kenney Lu, believe that this attack group, particularly Wool3n.H4t, are traditional or old-fashioned cyber criminals whose interests are inline with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Once we were among the first who carried out an independent comparison of the most popular monitoring software. The results made it possible to rate the functionality and applicability of world’s leading spy-products that employ keylogging techniques. But the time goes by, and we endeavor keeping abreast of it. Willing to trace the latest trends and tendencies in keylogging world’s development, as well as to deliver this information to our wide audience, Keylogger.Org Team declares its readiness to realize a new project. What will it look like? It depends on your opinion! We are interested in holding the contest that appears to be the most actual for our audience today. The format of prospecting action could vary from another products comparison to e.g. best-article-on-keylogging contest. Both developers and users are invited for discussion. Everyone is welcome to share his vision of the future contest (essence, format, prize fund forming etc.)! It can be addressed to Keylogger.Org Team personally (firstname.lastname@example.org) or presented in special branches of our Forum (for users and developers). Any creative ideas will be appreciated and considered. Keylogger.Org Team
