Agile Approach to Mass Cloud Credential Harvesting and Crypto Mining Sprints Ahead

August 23, 2023

Developers are not the only people who have adopted the agile methodology for their development processes. From 2023-06-15 to 2023-07-11, Permiso Security’s p0 Labs team identified and tracked an attacker developing and deploying eight (8) incremental iterations of their credential harvesting malware while continuing to develop infrastructure for an upcoming (spoiler: now launched) campaign targeting various cloud services.

While last week Aqua Security published a blog detailing this under-development campaign’s stages related to infected Docker images, today Permiso p0 Labs and SentinelLabs are releasing joint research highlighting the incremental updates to the cloud credential harvesting malware samples systematically collected by monitoring the attacker’s infrastructure. So get out of your seats and enjoy this scrum meeting stand-up dedicated to sharing knowledge about this actors campaign and the tooling they will use to steal more cloud credentials.
