A leading Russian bank founded in 1993 has experienced a major security incident. The bank is part of a huge Russian conglomerate company, which is the largest publicly traded holding company in Russia. The threat actor, who remains unnamed, dumped the data on a popular cybercrime channel, where it was quickly circulated. A large number of the bank's clients have had their personal information exposed. This breach comes after the news that the bank has had its license revoked by the UAE.

Trickbot is back in the news again this time because the United States and the United Kingdom have sanctioned several more of its members.

At a quick glance, the code appeared harmless, but a closer look by the Google Threat Analysis group showed that after downloading the tool, it had the ability to execute malicious code from a command and control server controlled by said North Korean threat actors.
