The Security Tango is my name for the dance you have to do every time you want to assure yourself that your computer is free of viruses, spyware, keystroke loggers, backdoors, trojans, and other forms of malware (click the Definitions button in the menu to see what all those things mean).
It's something you need to do regularly and often - daily is too often!
Therefore, it is possible that additional HIDDEN COBRA malware may be present on network infrastructure compromised with Volgmer The U. Government has analyzed Volgmer’s infrastructure and have identified it on systems using both dynamic and static IP addresses.
At least 94 static IP addresses were identified, as well as dynamic IP addresses registered across various countries.
MAR-10135536-A examines the tactics, techniques, and procedures observed in the malware.
For a downloadable copy of the MAR, see: According to trusted third-party reporting, HIDDEN COBRA actors have likely been using FALLCHILL malware since 2016 to target the aerospace, telecommunications, and finance industries.
DHS and FBI recommend that network administrators review the information provided, identify whether any of the provided IP addresses fall within their organizations’ allocated IP address space, and—if found—take necessary measures to remove the malware.The simple act of getting on the Internet and downloading email or going to a Web page can expose your computer to malicious crackers who would love to take over your machine for their own use. Originally, the Security Tango was mostly for Windows-based computers. Government refers to malicious cyber activity by the North Korean government as HIDDEN COBRA.To dance the Security Tango, click the Let's Dance link up above. I'm sure that those of you running Linux or a Macintosh used to laugh yourselves sick at all the machinations that your Windows-using friends had to go through to keep themselves safe. As Linux and the Mac have become more popular, we've see more viruses for them. government partners, DHS and FBI identified Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and other indicators of compromise (IOCs) associated with a Trojan malware variant used by the North Korean government—commonly known as Volgmer.
