The European Union is investigating an IT incident. Hackers are distributing malware via Discord and Slack file sharing. And cyber crooks are highly interested in SAP software. This is CyberScoop for April 7, 2021.

A mysterious 'security incident' in the heart of Europe

EU officials said Tuesday they were dealing with an “IT security incident” involving multiple EU government agencies. They were mum on details, citing an ongoing investigation. But EU officials did say that they set up a “monitoring service” to track down more details. We’ll be doing the same. Sean Lyngaas has the story.

Beware Discord and Slack links

Hackers are increasingly using Slack and Discord file attachment functionality to distribute malware to unsuspecting victims, according to Cisco Talos research published Wednesday. They have been uploading files to the platforms, which then provide them a URL link to the content. Once this is complete, the attackers can then share the links outside of Slack and Discord — for instance, over email or on other chat applications — and people who don’t have Discord installed can click through the bad links as well, allowing attackers to share the malicious links wherever they want. Shannon Vavra breaks it down.

Cybercriminals love SAP exploits

Honeypots, or simulated networks that snag hackers, can be more about marketing than research. But a new one from SAP and Onapsis makes an important point: There is unrelenting interest from crooks in exploiting SAP software used by some of the biggest firms in the world. One highlight: An attacker chained together multiple exploits to break into a (mock) credential store. Sean dives in.

Cyber bigwigs join call for Jan. 6 commission

Some big names in cybersecurity are among the former U.S. government officials calling on Congress to create a bipartisan commission to study the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riot. The riot was “the result of complex national security threats,” including disinformation campaigns and perhaps foreign influence operations, wrote the ex-officials, which included Adm. Michael Rogers, the former NSA and Cyber Command boss, and Michael Daniel, President Obama’s cybersecurity adviser. Read the letter.
