Threat Intel Report | August 2022

As organizations vacillate on decisions about return-to-office dates and how they will approach remote work going forward, one thing is for sure: Telecommuting gained widespread acceptance over the past few years and is here to stay. Most companies will likely settle on some form of hybrid work. 

Whichever route they choose, organizations need to be aware that threat actors target telecommuters, seeking to make inroads into organizations via home office setups. Cyber adversaries look for IoT devices and home routers they can exploit with malware such as the recently uncovered ZuoRAT, which targets home office routers. 

In our August threat report, back after a July hiatus, we take a look at ZuoRAT, as well as the recently discovered ransomware and espionage threats Holy Ghost and Aoqin Dragon. We cover the latest shenanigans of LockBit ransomware, which has debuted a first-of-its-kind bug bounty program, and we touch on the security aspects of remote work.
