Hackers Behind A Murderous Malware Attack Are Back Say Experts

Hackers behind a murderous malware attack are back say experts

The hackers behind ‘the most murderous malware’ in the world are back and have infected a key infrastructure facility, security analysts say.

Researchers at the firm FireEye say traces of a dangerous malware called Triton have cropped up for the second time since since 2017, when hackers leveraged it to gain control of critical processes at an oil plant in Saudi Arabia.

In a report, the firm did not reveal exactly where the attack happened, who the target was, or even how much damage, if any, was done, though it did highlight some of the group’s apparent intentions.

The actor gained a foothold on the distributed control system (DCS) but did not leverage that access to learn about plant operations, exfiltrate sensitive information, tamper with the DCS controllers, or manipulate the process,’ reads the report.

It follows a report from MIT Technology Review earlier this year that warned the malware is ‘murderous’ and spreading.

By masking their activity through innocuous file names, posing as legitimate administrative tools, and more, researchers say the group was able to stay undetected within the facility’s systems for a year before compromising it’s Safety Instrumented System (SIS).
