Weekly Intelligence Summary 20th August

August 20, 2021

A configurable, malicious Traffic Direction System (TDS) has been enabling widespread malware attacks. The “Prometheus” TDS can direct malware at a variety of potential victims, boosting the potential size and impact of attacks. Several high-profile trojan operators have reportedly used Prometheus to conduct malware attacks on a large scale. As a relatively cheap cybercriminal service―one that is readily available on a cybercriminal forum―Prometheus is also likely enabling many other threat actors, including those without technical sophistication. Considering the similar offerings available online, there seems to be a growing market for platforms that help malware operators expand the impact of their attacks. This TDS is just one example of the growing professionalization of cybercriminal services.
