Iranian hackers attack Israeli organizations. They target providers of basic services

The ClearSky team has discovered a new threat of attacks by Iranian hackers. People working on the Siamesekitten team have targeted Israeli suppliers of services such as oil, gas, and telecommunications services.

The Siamese kitten hacking group (also called Lyceum or Hexane) is an Iranian APT group operating in the Middle East and Africa. ClearSky specialists found that their attacks took place in May and July this year.

Attack method

Iranian cybercriminals, as part of their attacks on Israeli companies, impersonated employees of a given company or the HR department of other corporations. Potential victims were tempted by false job offers in large, well-known companies. Fraudsters pretending to be recruiters sent, among other things, spreadsheets containing job offers with detailed information.

The interested employees accessed the phishing pages that were sent to them, listed in the offer file. On the sites crafted by the hackers, there was a hidden file that launched the backdoor Milan. The next stage of the attack was to download a remote access Trojan named DanBot, which was possible thanks to an earlier backdoor.

So you can see that the Siamesekitten group put a lot of work into their attacks. In addition to creating fake pages and campaigns targeting potential victims, hackers also created profiles on LinkedIn. This, in turn, could be used by them to further build a database of potential victims, as well as to authenticate their intentions.

Spy campaign

According to ClearSky, such campaigns by Siamesekitten are typical espionage activities. As with other groups, it is possible that intelligence gathering is the first step towards launching impersonation attacks.

The specialists also found that the attacks were similar in their manner to that of another campaign. In their opinion, the North Korean operation, aimed at the defense industry at the time, was carried out in a very similar way.

Windows 11 Enterprise Virtual Machine Is Available!

If you are waiting for Windows 11 Enterprise, which contains a number of Enterprise-class features, of course, then the good news is here for you, because some time ago Microsoft finally released the Windows 11 version, even though it is still a virtual machine file.

The file consists of several different files according to the user’s preferred VM application preferences, there are VMWare, Hyper-V, VirtualBox and Parallels, and not only Windows 11 Enterprise but there are also a number of things that are included in this VM including:

  • Window 11 Enterprise (evaluation)
  • Windows 10 SDK, version 2004 (10.0.19041.0)
  • Visual Studio 2019 (latest as of 10/09/21) with the UWP, .NET desktop, and Azure workflows enabled and also includes the Windows Template Studio extension
  • Visual Studio Code (latest as of 10/09/21)
  • Windows Subsystem for Linux enabled with Ubuntu installed
  • Developer mode enabled
  • Windows Terminal installed

Still quoted from the Microsoft page, this VM package has an expiration date of January 9, 2022, not long, right?, of course, because this is the Evaluation version which as usual has a time limit of approximately 90 days.

Size and How to Download

As for the size itself, this VM package is around 17 – 20.5 GB in size, quite large indeed, because once again it includes a number of applications and even WSL with the Ubuntu distro.

As for how to download it, you can just go to the https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/virtual-machines/ page to download this Windows 11 Enterprise VM.

So if you’re curious, just try it, for the installation tutorial itself, I’ll make it in the next article. Thank you.
