Opengear Server Keys on Dark Web: A Threat to Critical Infrastructure Security
Our latest findings on the dark web revealed an alarming discovery of Opengear server product keys on the dark web, reportedly sold for €150. The threat actor claims a 60-day uptime, raising concerns about the security of the critical infrastructure. These keys could have been obtained from Opengear itself or companies’ servers. If they belong to companies using Opengear services, monitoring systems closely to prevent potential data breaches is crucial.
Our investigation revealed that AS20057 AT&T Mobility LLC hosts these servers. Interestingly, one of these servers is used by AT&T for sending SMS messages. The unauthorised remote access being sold includes root and superuser privileges. Although the data passing through the server is encrypted, unauthorised access is sold cheaply, as it’s impossible to view the SMS messages in cleartext.
In light of these findings, it’s essential for businesses using Opengear services to monitor their systems and ensure that unauthorised access doesn’t compromise their critical infrastructure. Encryption alone might not be enough to protect sensitive data; staying vigilant and implementing additional security measures can safeguard against potential ransomware and data breaches.
AnonGhost Hacktivist Group Targets Israeli Defense Forces and Claims Access to Thousands of Bank Accounts
Last month, AnonGhost Official, a pro-Palestinian hacktivist group, claimed to have targeted the Israeli Defense Forces (IDS) by sharing an IP address list of remote access credentials for certain servers in Israel. The group had previously declared its intention to target Israel.
AnonGhost claims to have used a 0-day exploit to launch ransomware attacks on some RDP servers in Israel, sharing images as evidence. This is a bold claim for a hacktivist group. They assert that they have conducted the attacks using their own custom-written scripts and have gained unauthorized access to several servers. However, the extent of their activities remains unclear.
The hacktivist group also alleges having access to thousands of Israeli bank accounts, including accounts at Bank Hapoalim. As proof, they shared a screenshot taken from the online banking portal of Bank Hapoalim. Hacktivist group claims to have bypassed Bank Hapoalim’s 2FA security. However, this evidence is insufficient to support their claims. The hackers may have acquired access to these accounts through phishing campaigns and malware, though the information provided remains unreliable.
