Weekly Intelligence Summary 07 August 2020

August 7, 2020

“Lazarus Group”, the North Korean state-linked advanced persistent threat (APT) collective, has reportedly used their newly identified “MATA” malware framework and newly created “VHD” ransomware to target high-profile victims. This suggests the group is engaged in big game hunting, which is a tactic typically associated with organized cybercriminal groups; Lazarus Group straddles the line between state-linked APT group and financially motiviated cybercrime group. It is realistically possible that the collective is attempting ransomware attacks to emulate the financial success of groups linked to the “Maze”, “Sodinokibi”, and “DoppelPaymer” variants. Lazarus Group will very likely conduct more attacks in the short-term future (one to three months).
