Original release date: October 11, 2018
Summary

This report is a collaborative research effort by the cyber security authorities of five nations: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.[1][2][3][4][5]

In it we highlight the use of five publicly available tools, which have been used for malicious purposes in recent cyber incidents around the world.

To aid the work of network defenders and systems administrators, we also provide advice on limiting the effectiveness of these tools and detecting their use on a network.

The individual tools we cover in this report are limited examples of the types of tools used by threat actors. You should not consider this an exhaustive list when planning your network defense.

Original release date: October 03, 2018
Systems Affected

Network Systems

Overview

The National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) is aware of ongoing APT actor activity attempting to infiltrate the networks of global managed service providers (MSPs). Since May 2016, APT actors have used various tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) for the purposes of cyber espionage and intellectual property theft. APT actors have targeted victims in several U.S. critical infrastructure sectors, including Information Technology (IT), Energy, Healthcare and Public Health, Communications, and Critical Manufacturing.

This Technical Alert (TA) provides information and guidance to assist MSP customer network and system administrators with the detection of malicious activity on their networks and systems and the mitigation of associated risks.

Systems Affected

Retail Payment Systems

Overview

This joint Technical Alert (TA) is the result of analytic efforts between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of the Treasury (Treasury), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Working with U.S. government partners, DHS, Treasury, and FBI identified malware and other indicators of compromise (IOCs) used by the North Korean government in an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) cash-out scheme—referred to by the U.S. Government as “FASTCash.” The U.S. Government refers to malicious cyber activity by the North Korean government as HIDDEN COBRA. For more information on HIDDEN COBRA activity, visit https://www.us-cert.gov/hiddencobra.

Hey, So What’s This Mac App Got Access To?

Just some one-liners you may find useful… I’ve written about codesign a few times in the past. To see a detailed description of how an app was signed:

codesign -dvvvv /Applications/Firefox.app

This also gives you the bundleID for further inspection of an app. But there are a number of tools you can use to check out signing and go further into entitlements and sandboxing. You can check the 

asctl sandbox check --bundle com.microsoft.outlook

The response would be similar to 

/Applications/Microsoft Outlook.app:

signed with App Sandbox entitlements

In the above, we see that Outlook has entitlements to do some stuffs. But where do you see an indication of what it can do? There are a number of sandbox profiles located in /usr/share/sandbox and the more modern /System/Library/Sandbox/Profiles/ and Versions/A/Resources inside each framework should have a .sb file – but those are the Apple sandbox profiles. Additionally, you can see what...

A couple one-liners for analyzing Mac app usage

Reporting on application usage is an interesting topic on the Mac. This is done automatically with a number of device management solutions. But there are things built into the OS that can help as well.

mdls "/Applications/Xcode.app" -name kMDItemLastUsedDate | awk '{print $3}'

Now, if you happen to also need the time, simply add ,$4 to the end of your awk print so you can see the next position, which is the time.

Additionally, a simple one-liner to grab the foreground app via AppleScript is:

osascript -e 'tell application "System Events"' -e 'set frontApp to name of first application process whose frontmost is true' -e 'end tell'

That’s pretty much all I had to say about that.

Managing Virus Scans With ClamAV

There are a number of solutions on the market for scanning a Mac for files that have become infected with a virus or macro-virus. Many of these have a negative return on investment. So customers can instead go the open source route to scan files and quarantine them. And customers can use Jamf Pro to enable doing so. This page is meant to provide a quick and dirty guide to doing so, along with how this might be packaged and potentially tracked with Jamf Pro. First, we’ll install and configure a free tool called clamav.

There are a number of ways to install clam. For this example, just to get it done quickly, we’ll use homebrew which is simply brew with the install verb and clamav as the recipe to be brewed:

brew install clamav

This is going to place your configuration files in /usr/local/etc/clamav and these cannot be used as those supplied by default are simply sample configurations. Because the .sample files have a line that indicates they are an “Example”...

Quick and Dirty OpenBSM Auditing In macOS

OpenBSM is a subsystem that has been installed on the Mac for some time. OpenBSM provides that ability to create and read audit logs based on the Common Criteria standards.

Audit Logs

The quick and easy way to see what OpenBSM is auditing is to cat the /etc/security/audit_control file:

cat /etc/security/audit_control

The output displays the directory of audit logs, as well as what is currently being audited. By default the configuration is as follows:

#
# $P4: //depot/projects/trustedbsd/openbsm/etc/audit_control#8 $
#
dir:/var/audit
flags:lo,aa
minfree:5
naflags:lo,aa
policy:cnt,argv

Using Apple’s Built-In Malware Removal Tool (MRT)

macOS now comes with a vulnerability scanner called mrt. It’s installed within the MRT.app bundle in /System/Library/CoreServices/MRT.app/Contents/MacOS/ and while it doesn’t currently have a lot that it can do – it does protect against the various bad stuff that is actually available for the Mac. To use mrt, simply run the binary with a -a flag for agent and then a -r flag along with the path to run it against. For example, let’s say you run a launchctl command to list LaunchDaemons and LaunchAgents running:

launchctl list

And you see something that starts with com.abc. Let me assure you that nothing should ever start with that. So you can scan it using the following command: 

sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/MRT.app/Contents/MacOS/mrt -a -r ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.abc.123.c1e71c3d22039f57527c52d467e06612af4fdc9A.plist

What happens next is that the bad thing you’re scanning for will be checked to see if it matches a known hash from MRT or from /...
