Hackers attacked Russian banks on behalf of the Central Bank


The newsletter was sent from the fake address of the Bank of Russia, Group-IB calls it the senders of the hacker grouping Silence. Letters with the subject “Information of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation” invited recipients to familiarize themselves with the resolution of the regulator “On unifying the format of electronic banking messages of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation” and immediately proceed with the execution of the “order”, noted in Group-IB. The documents were allegedly placed in the attached archive, unpacking which the user eventually downloaded Silence. Downloader is a tool that Silence hackers use.
The style and design of the letter were almost identical to the official mailings of the Central Bank, emphasize in Group-IB. “Most likely, hackers had access to samples of genuine messages. Recall that according to a Group-IB report released in September of this year, participants in Silence are people who are allegedly engaged in or engaged in legal work - pentest and reverse engineering. That’s why they are familiar with the workflow in the financial sector and the work of the banking systems, "the report says.
According to Group-IB, at least 52 banks in Russia and at least five banks abroad received a malicious newsletter on November 15. Most likely, the attacked banks were more than a hundred, according to the company. About affected by the actions of hackers are not reported.
A similar attack was also recorded on October 23. According to Group-IB, the letters were sent from the fake address of FinCERT (a structural unit of the Information Security Department of the Bank of Russia) by the MoneyTaker group. The letters contained five attachments, also stylized under official documents of the Central Bank. Three of the five files were empty baits, and the other two contained the Meterpreter Stager loader, according to a Group-IB report. Group-IB analysts believe that samples of documents of the Central Bank hackers received from previously compromised mailboxes of employees of Russian banks.

On the hacker attack on their resources on November 15, the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) reported. According to the ministry, there was a massive mailing of a virus stealing service logins and passwords. In parallel, there was an attack on information resources, possibly with the aim of hacking, noted in the FAS.
