Lazarus X_TRADER Breach Impacts Critical Infrastructure Beyond 3CX

Lazarus, a North Korean hacking group, has been found to have breached two critical infrastructure organizations in the power and energy sector and two other businesses involved in financial trading using a trojanized X_TRADER application.

This attack is linked to the one targeting 3CX last month, and the attackers are believed to be motivated by financial gain.

Mandiant’s investigation revealed that a backdoor was injected into the corrupted X_TRADER app, allowing the adversary to gain access to the employee’s computer and steal credentials.

Symantec has identified the deployment of a modular backdoor which connects to the Trading Technologies’ website for command-and-control.

This attack is likely to have impacted more organizations than just 3CX.
