Adversaries don’t work 9-5 and neither do we. At eSentire, our 24/7 SOCs are staffed with Elite Threat Hunters and Cyber Analysts who hunt, investigate, contain and respond to threats within minutes.
We have discovered some of the most dangerous threats and nation state attacks in our space – including the Kaseya MSP breach and the more_eggs malware.
Our Security Operations Centers are supported with Threat Intelligence, Tactical Threat Response and Advanced Threat Analytics driven by our Threat Response Unit – the TRU team.
In TRU Positives, eSentire’s Threat Response Unit (TRU) provides a summary of a recent threat investigation. We outline how we responded to the confirmed threat and what recommendations we have going forward.
Here’s the latest from our TRU Team…
UpdateAgent collects information about the system and submits it to the C2 domain (hxxps://dgu8hufljhqqu[.]cloudfront[.]net/pkg) via HTTP POST request:
The information collected includes the active user, machine ID, operating system, and version.
Then it, retrieves a DMG file from hxxps://duh59xv2mx0nn[.]cloudfront[.]net, adds the current user to the ‘sudoers’ file and disables the password prompt:
Next, it clears extended attributes on the DMG file to bypass Gatekeeper, which is a security feature in macOS aimed at reducing the likelihood of users accidentally running malware downloaded from the internet.
Similar to the Mark-of-Web attribute in Windows, macOS applications (such as browsers) add an extended attribute known as a quarantine flag to files downloaded from the internet. UpdateAgent clears all extended attributes (including the quarantine flag) using the xattr command.
Then, it uses PlistBuddy in direct mode to add arguments to a property list file. (com.shenbfgbvgsfssfmrynamdzyetzfnd.plist) under the user’s /Library/LaunchAgents/ folder for persistence:
Lastly, the cleanup actions show as follows:
