OilAlpha: Emerging Threat Targets Arabian Android Users

This new threat group, OilAlpha, uses social engineering to attack its targets using encrypted chat chat services like WhatsApp.

There’s even some evidence that it’s been recruited by Yemeni operatives, though Recorded Future doesn’t yet have enough evidence to prove that they’re the ones actually responsible for all of the attacks.

TAG-XX (short for Threat Activity Group) is the temporary moniker assigned to emerging threat groups.

OilAlpha used encrypted chat messengers like WhatsApp to launch social engineering attacks against its targets, cybersecurity company Recorded Future said in a technical report published Tuesday.

Another factor is the use of malicious Android-based applications to likely surveil delegates associated with the Saudi Arabian government-led negotiations.

While OilAlpha’s activity is pro-Houthi, there is insufficient evidence to suggest that Yemeni operatives are responsible for this threat activity.
