We're already used to the fact that complex cyberattacks use 0-day vulnerabilities, bypassing digital signature checks, virtual file systems, non-standard encryption algorithms and other tricks.
Sometimes, however, all of this may be done in much simpler ways, as was the case in the malicious campaign that we detected a while ago – we named it 'Microcin' after microini, one of the malicious components used in it.
In the field of information security, sandboxes are used to isolate an insecure external environment from a secure internal environment (or vice versa), to protect against the exploitation of vulnerabilities, and to analyze malicious code.

At Kaspersky Lab, we have several sandboxes, we will look at just one of them that was customized to serve the needs of a specific product and became the basis of Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform.
The emergency intercom started speaking to me in a voice Irsquo;ve heard a thousand times.
The Microsoft.NET framework fails to properly parse WSDL content,which can allow a remote,unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.

Miners on the Rise

Over the last month alone, we have detected several large botnets designed to profit from concealed crypto mining. We have also observed growing numbers of attempts to install miners on servers owned by organizations. When these attempts are successful, the companiesrsquo; business processes suffer because data processing speeds fall substantially.
In one of our previous articles, we analyzed the NeutrinoPOS banker as an example of a constantly evolving malware family.

A week after publication, this Neutrino modification delivered up a new malicious program classified by Kaspersky Lab as Trojan-Banker.Win32.Jimmy.
In July 2017, during an investigation, suspicious DNS requests were identified in a partnerrsquo;s network.

The source of the queries was a software package produced by NetSarang. Our analysis showed that recent versions of the software had been surreptitiously modified to include an encrypted payload that could be remotely activated by a knowledgeable attacker.
Lookalike npm packages grabbed stored credentials A two-week-old campaign to steal developers' credentials using malicious code distributed through npm, the Node.js package management registry, has been halted with the removal of 39 malicious npm packages.…
Microsoft has introduced a new container service, Azure Container Instances (ACI), that is intended to provide a more lightweight and granular way to run containerized applications than its Azure Container Service (ACS).ACI runs individual containers that you can configure with specific amounts of virtual CPU and memory, and that are billed by the second.

Containers can be pulled from various sources – Docker Hub, the Azure Container Registry, or a private repository – andnbsp;deployed from the CLI or by way of an Azure template.[ Are you ready for the container invasion? Learn how to get started with Kubernetes. | Keep up with the latest developments in cloud computing with InfoWorldrsquo;s Cloud Computing newsletter. ]Microsoft is emphasizing how ACI is complementary to ACS, rather than a replacement for it.

ACI is meant for smaller, more burst-able workloads, or as a way to temporarily satisfy a surge in demand, rather than as a way to deploy complex, long-running applications with many interdependencies between containers.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Magala falls into the category of Trojan Clickers that imitate a user click on a particular webpage, thus boosting advertisement click counts.
Itrsquo;s worth pointing out that Magala doesnrsquo;t actually affect the user, other than consuming some of the infected computerrsquo;s resources.

The main victims are those paying for the advertising.
