Victim Notification Performed for USG Health Agency

During routine testing of a new Wapack Labs Application Program Interface (API), Wapack Labs identified what appears to be multiple potential compromises at a USG health agency. 

  • On June 8, 2015, keylogger activity was recorded on the USA JOBS portal for an account belonging to a defense contractor with a USG health agency email account. The contractor’s session on USA JOBS was captured by keyloggers, including (unconfirmed) personally identifiable information (PII) that may have been entered into the system. Regardless of how or why, the account was observed; user name and password, in keylogger outputs.
  •   On Feb 6, 2016 Wapack Labs identified malicious email destined for the USG health agency, but found the indicator only today, and did not report.
  • Between Feb 18, 2016 and May 11, 2016, ten instances of keylogger activities associated with five USG health agency email accounts and five accounts associated with a USG health agency log-in were logged by Wapack Labs collections.

A Victim Notification has been performed regarding the incident.
