CERBER is a ransomware family which has adopted a new technique to make itself harder to detect: it is now using a new loader which appears to be designed to evade detection by machine learning solutions. This loader is designed to hollow out a normal process where the code of CERBER is instead run.Read More
The iOS ecosystem is usually described as a closed ecosystem, under the strict control of Apple. However, there are still ways to get around this tight control. Remember the Haima app? That method relied on enterprise certificates from Apple—which are costly, since the certificates needed are changed very frequently.
We are currently seeing how third-party app stores are improving. Recently, we saw an app that leads to a third-party app store being offered on the official iOS App Store. To evade detection, this app was concealed as a legitimate app. In at least one case, an app used for jailbreaking was available via this third-party app store.Read More
The Android security bulletin for March, published last March 6, contains 15 vulnerabilities that we discovered and privately disclosed to Google. Like some of our previous discoveries, many of these new vulnerabilities concern Mediaserver, which is the component responsible for scanning and indexing all available media files in the Android operating system.Read More
We’ve uncovered a new breed of point-of-sale (PoS) malware currently affecting businesses across North America and Canada: MajikPOS (detected by Trend Micro as TSPY_MAJIKPOS.A). Like a lot of other PoS malware, MajikPOS is designed to steal information, but its modular approach in execution makes it distinct. We estimate that MajikPOS’s initial infection started around January 28, 2017.
While other PoS malware FastPOS (its updated version), Gorynych and ModPOS also feature multiple components with entirely different functions like keylogging, MajikPOS’s modular tack is different. MajikPOS needs only another component from the server to conduct its RAM scraping routine.Read More
by Jeanne Jocson and Jennifer Gumban Linux has long been the preferred operating system for enterprise platforms and Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturers. Linux-based devices are continually being deployed in smart systems across many different industries, with IoT gateways facilitating connected solutions and services central to different businesses. In connection to their widespread use, we’ve…Read More
