Historical OSINT - Inside the 2007-2009 Series of Cyber Attacks Against Multiple International Embassies

Remember, the, Russian, Business, Network, and, the, New, Media, Malware, Gang?

It's, been, several, years, since, I, last, posted, an, update, regarding, the, group's, activities, including, the, direct, establishing, of, a, direct, connection, between, the, Russian, Business, Network, the, New, Media, Malware, gang, including, a, variety, of, high, profile, Web, site, compromise, campaigns.

What's, particularly, interesting, about, the, group's, activities, is, the, fact, that, back, in, 2007, the, group's, activities, used, to, dominate, the, threat, landscape, in, a, targeted, fashion, including, the, active, utilization, of, client-side, exploits, and, the, active, exploitation, of, legitimate, Web, sites, successfully, positioning, the, group, including, the, Russian, Business, Network, as, a, leading, provider, of, malicious, activities, online, leading, to, a, series, of, analyses, successfully, detailing, the, activities, of, the, group, including, the, direct, establishing, of, a, connection, between, the, New, Media, Malware, Gang, the, Russian, Business, Network, and, the, Storm, Worm, botnet.

In, this, post, I'll, provide, a, detailed, analysis, of, the, group's, activities, discuss, in, the, depth, the, tactics, techniques, and, procedures, (TTPs), of, the, group, including, a, direct, establishing, of, a, connection, between, the, New, Media, Malware, Gang, the, Russian, Business, Network, and, the, direct, compromise, of, a, series, of, high, profile, Web, site, compromise, campaigns.

Having, successfully, tracked, down, and, profiled, the, group's, activities, for, a, period, of, several, years, and, based, on, the, actionable, intelligence, provided, regarding, the, group's, activities, we, can, easily, establish, a, direct, connection, between, the, New, Media, Malware, Gang, and, the, Russian, Business, Network, including, a, series, of, high, profile, Web, site, compromise, campaigns.

Key Summary Points:

- Actionable CYBERINT data to assist law enforcement, academics and the private sector in ongoing or past cybercrime investigations
- Complete domain portfolios registered up to the present day using the same emails used to register the malicious domains during 2007-2009 to assist law enforcement, academics and the private sector in catching up with their malicious activities over the years

 - The "Big Picture" detailing the inter-connections between the campaigns, with historical OSINT data pointing to the "New Media Malware Gang", back then customers of the Russian Business Network
