Cybercrime, BRATA is evolving into an APT

BRATA is evolving into an APT. Cleafy cybersecurity experts: Threat actors behind the malware now target a specific financial institution at a time, and change their focus only once the victim starts to implement countermeasures

BRATA is evolving into an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT). This has been discovered by Cleafy cybersecurity experts. Cybercrime actors behind the malware now target a specific financial institution at a time, and change their focus only once the targeted victim starts to implement consistent countermeasures against them. Then, they move away from the spotlight, to come out with a different target and strategies of infections. Furthermore, during the last months, a new BRATA.A variant has been spotted in EU posing as specific bank applications, including some internal changes, such as a new phishing technique that is in charge of mimicking a login page of the targeted bank; brand new classes in charge to acquire GPS, overlay, SMS and device management permissions; sideloading a piece of code (second stage) downloaded from its C2 to perform Event Logging.
