Since the beginning Group-IB has specialised in identifying hackers behind the attacks. I would like to cover the results of our 2 recent investigations in the APAC region. The first one led to the disarming of a hacker's group that primarily had been performing ransomware attacks. Members of the group were arrested this summer thanks to the efforts of Group-IB.
The second investigation is still in progress. The APT group has been attacking financial institutions in Europe, Africa, Russia and, since November 2018, in Asia as well. I would like to share our intelligence and recent findings to enrich the knowledge of your blue and red teams in understanding financially motivated APT groups.
