Updated on 2022-12-22: Gamaredon APT

PAN’s Unit42 has a report out on recent operations of the Trident Ursa APT (aka Gamaredon, Armageddon). These operations have targeted Ukraine almost all year but have also included “an unsuccessful attempt to compromise a large petroleum refining company within a NATO member nation on August 30.” However, the strangest part in the report is a series of threats made on Twitter by a Trident Ursa member against Mikhail Kasimov, a Ukrainian security researcher who has previously published Gamaredon IOCs and living in one of the Ukrainian war zones. Some of these tweets are still up. Read more: Russia’s Trident Ursa (aka Gamaredon APT) Cyber Conflict Operations Unwavering Since Invasion of Ukraine

Overview: Infamous Russian state-sponsored actor launches new campaign in Ukraine

Cisco Talos discovered Gamaredon APT activity targeting users in Ukraine with malicious LNK files distributed in RAR archives. The campaign, part of an ongoing espionage operation observed as recently as August 2022, aims to deliver information-stealing malware to Ukrainian victim machines and makes heavy use of multiple modular PowerShell and VBScript (VBS) scripts as part of the infection chain. The infostealer is a dual-purpose malware that includes capabilities for exfiltrating specific file types and deploying additional binary and script-based payloads on an infected endpoint. This campaign aligns with Gamaredon’s past motivations of targeting Ukraine since Russia’s invasion.
