BlackBerry Uncovers Massive Hack-For-Hire Group Targeting Governments, Businesses, Human Rights Groups and Influential Individuals

AAPL BB

WATERLOO, ON, Oct. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) today released new research highlighting the true reach and sophistication of one of the most elusive, patient, and effective publicly known threat actors – BAHAMUT. In the report, BlackBerry researchers link the cyberespionage threat group to a staggering number of ongoing attacks against government officials and industry titans, while also unveiling the group's vast network of disinformation assets aimed at furthering particular political causes and hampering NGOs. The report also highlights increased targeting on mobile devices and how the group has published over a dozen applications in the Google Play and the Apple iOS App Stores, as well as the highly patient approach BAHAMUT takes in compromising their targets. Named by researchers for the open-source intelligence site Bellingcat, BAHAMUT leverages publicly available tools, imitates other threat groups and changes its tactics frequently, which has made attribution difficult in the past. However, BlackBerry reports with high confidence that the threat group is behind exploits researched by over 20 different security companies and nonprofits under the names EHDEVEL, WINDSHIFT, URPAGE, THE WHITE COMPANY, and most significantly, the unnamed threat group in Kaspersky's 2016 "InPage zero-day" research.
