Experts Concerned Over New 'Ice Breaker' Cyberattacks Targeting the Gaming and Gambling Industries
The way these attacks unfold is that the hacker first poses as a customer and contacts the support staff of a gaming or gambling company. Once establishing contact is complete, the cybercriminal will work to coerce or convince the company agent to send them a screenshot of an image hosted on Dropbox. These hackers target companies that know the support system is human-operated, not robots.
Once the hacker receives the screenshot, retrieve an LNK payload or VBScript file, which acts as a backup alternative. At the same time, work is configured and downloaded on the company agent's computer, which will release an MSI package that contains a Node.js implant.
