Malaysian companies working on the Kasawari gas project in the South China Sea were among the targets of cyberattacks by Beijing-backed hackers.
Citing new research from cybersecurity firm Proofpoint and consulting firm PwC, energy portal Oilprice.com on Tuesday (Aug 30) said hacking group Red Ladon, also known as TA423, is using a simple phishing scam to attack politically significant targets in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, including defence contractors, infrastructure, and law firms involved in diplomatic disputes.
The scam sees victims lured in by fake news websites that infect targets’ computers with malicious software, called ScanBox, that lets hackers gather information for reconnaissance purposes.
