Spear-phishing targeting specific Israeli targets

Tonight on i24 News, KELA Targeted Cyber Intelligence‚Äôs COO, Mr. Yakir Bechler, explained the recent attempt for a broad attack on Israeli targets. This coordinated attack was exposed by Israel’s Cyber Defense Authority. The threat actor used spear-phishing targeting specific Israeli targets, aiming to inject malware which exploits a vulnerability in Microsoft Office (CVE-2017-0199). For now it seems the attackers were successful in breaching two Israeli entities (one research institute and one commercial entity), and continued attacking more targets using the compromised machines.

The RaDark technology, developed by KELA Targeted Cyber Intelligence, provides our clients intelligence about threats specifically targeting them, allowing them to be one step ahead of threat actors.
