Since at least January 2020, threat actors have seized on the media attention surrounding the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic to launch phishing campaigns designed to distribute malware to unsuspecting users. As of late-March, our research has yielded over 6,000 Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) and at least 15 distinct campaigns associated with 11 threat actors or groups distributing 39 different malware families and employing 80 various MITRE ATT&CK techniques. In the webinar, Roberto will share the details of the campaigns and groups behind them.
