Fidelis Threat Intelligence Report – January 2021

The Fidelis Threat Research Team (TRT) collects a wealth of security and threat intelligence information for security professionals interested in the state of global cybersecurity. The report gives insights into malware, ransomware, and other cyber threats, as well as recommendations from the Fidelis TRT.

In this January 2021 report, the Fidelis TRT analyzed an espionage campaign from Lebanese Cedar (aka: Volatile Cedar), which was exploiting older vulnerabilities in ISPs and Telecoms to deliver customer malware.

Further highlighted in this report:

  • An alleged leaks site for data stolen from victims of the SolarWinds breach is assessed to be unsubstantiated and likely a scam.
  • 79% of total January events were targeted towards the Government vertical.
  • Continued ransomware and espionage incidents against Healthcare, Transportation, and Retail verticals
