    Last week, we released a research paper titled “Operation Arid Viper: Bypassing the Iron Dome” where we detailed two related campaigns. To recall, here are our key findings related to the two campaigns: Palestinian threat actors have staged a targeted attack, Operation Arid Viper, to exfiltrate data from high-profile targets in the Israeli government and have been doing so since mid-2013. The attacks are still on-going, coinciding with the political tension between Israel and Palestinians. Investigation of the Germany-hosted server used in Arid ...

    Trend Micro has recently reached an important milestone: we have vetted our 500 millionth "good file" towards the end of 2014. This means that we have a strong and vast repository of files to competently decide whether any given file is non-malicious or otherwise.

Our research shows that these attacks targeting PoS malware are growing in sophistication, with code signing and improved encryption becoming more commonplace. We were also able to connect this PoS malware to the group involved with the Anunak malware—which is related to the Carbanak gang as posted by our colleagues over ...

    Today, Trend Micro publishes a research report on an ongoing malware campaign that targets Israeli victims and leverages network infrastructure in Germany. The campaign has strong attribution ties to Arab parties located in the Gaza Strip and elsewhere. We have uncovered two separate, but heavily interconnected campaigns: Operation Arid Viper: This is a highly-targeted attack on high-value Israeli targets that links back to attackers located in Gaza, Palestine. The campaign’s modus operandi involves using spear-phishing emails with an attachment containing malware disguised as a ...
