Airbus, the renowned French aerospace giant, is in the midst of a cybersecurity storm following a recent cyberattack. ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ”’

Here's what you need to know:

๐Ÿง The Hack

A hacker, known as 'USDoD,' announced on a cybercrime forum that they had successfully infiltrated Airbus systems. This same hacker had previously claimed to breach the FBI's InfraGard database. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ’ผ

๐Ÿคฏ The Breach

The hacker obtained personal data of 3,200 individuals linked to Airbus vendors, including Rockwell Collins and Thales. The stolen information includes names, job titles, addresses, emails, and phone numbers. ๐Ÿ“‹๐Ÿ“ง๐Ÿ“ž

๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ The Entry Point

The attacker gained access through a compromised account from a Turkish airline employee. Airbus confirmed this as the attack vector. ๐Ÿ“ฉ๐Ÿ›ซ

๐Ÿฆ  The Malware

It was revealed that malware played a significant role. The hacker used the RedLine malware, likely infecting the airline employee's device when they downloaded a pirated version of .NET. ๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿ’ป

๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ The Warning

Cybersecurity experts warn that info-stealer infections are becoming a prevalent initial attack method, leading to data breaches and ransomware attacks. Hudson Rock, a cyber intelligence firm, closely monitors such threats. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ผ๐Ÿ’ป

So, a Russian Journalist's iPhone Hacked with Pegasus Spyware ๐Ÿ“ฐ๐Ÿ”

Indeed, a shocking revelation has emerged from a collaborative investigation by Access Now and the Citizen Lab: Galina Timchenko, a prominent Russian journalist and owner of independent news publication Meduza, fell victim to a Pegasus spyware attack. ๐Ÿ“ฒ

Here's what you need to know:

๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ The Attack

Timchenko's iPhone was compromised with Pegasus spyware around February 10, 2023, but the perpetrator remains unknown. ๐Ÿ“…๐Ÿ”

๐ŸŒ Location

During the infection, her device was traced to Berlin, Germany, as she prepared to meet other exiled Russian media leaders to discuss countering threats and censorship by Putin's regime. ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿค

๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ Zero-Click Exploit

The breach was facilitated by a zero-click exploit called PWNYOURHOME, exploiting iOS' HomeKit and iMessage to bypass security measures. ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ”’

๐Ÿšจ First Russian Target

This marks the first documented case of Pegasus targeting a Russian individual. Pegasus, developed by NSO Group in Israel, is a powerful spying tool used to gather sensitive information. ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธ

๐Ÿ” Immediate Concerns

Timchenko received a threat notification from Apple on June 23, 2023, warning of state-sponsored attacks on her iPhone. ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ“ข

๐ŸŒ Global Impact

Pegasus has a history of misuse to spy on civil society members, prompting calls for a moratorium on spyware technology by organizations like the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ). ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿค

๐Ÿ“ฑ Protect Yourself

To stay safe, users are advised to activate Lockdown Mode on iPhones, especially if they are at risk of spyware attacks. ๐Ÿ“ฒ๐Ÿ”’

๐Ÿ” Security Alert in Butler County ๐Ÿ”’๐Ÿšจ

Last month, Butler County faced a cybersecurity incident that may have compromised certain information security.

On August 8th, county officials discovered that an unauthorised actor was using a County jail email account to send spam emails. Immediate action was taken to secure the account. ๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ๐Ÿ“ง

A renowned digital forensics team was brought in for further investigation. Subsequently, it was determined that an unauthorised party briefly accessed a County employee's email and copied its contents.

Some personally identifiable information was affected, and affected individuals will receive written notifications. ๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ”“๐Ÿ“„

Good news! ๐Ÿ˜Œ

No evidence suggests the release or sale of County-held personal information on the dark web. The County remains vigilant, enhancing email security, and advises potentially affected individuals to monitor financial accounts and credit reports.
