According to cybersecurity researchers, a malware campaign that triggered an alert from the FBI in April has resulted in over 10,000 attacks on at least 200 targets worldwide. The campaign involves multiple types of malware, including cryptominers and keyloggers, targeting various victims such as government agencies, agricultural organizations, and wholesale and retail trade companies.
The FBI and cybersecurity firm Kaspersky have not publicly attributed the campaign to a known cyberthreat group but have highlighted the risk to enterprises that provide business-to-business (B2B) products and services. The researchers stressed that the threat is still active, with new versions being discovered regularly, and businesses should remain vigilant to protect their resources and data.
Although most attacks were concentrated outside the US, Kaspersky advised businesses to be cautious as the hackers’ primary goal is financial gain, and compromised devices could be used for more dangerous purposes.
