Port Authority, NY/NJ

Wapack Labs is tracking intrusion indicators in multiple US and International Maritime Ports. This report is a summary of activity surrounding the Port Authority of NY and NJ.

Ports around the globe are increasingly victimized by attackers using a multitude of new vectors. One that never fails however, is the use of a keylogger delivered via email. In nearly every case, the email is received from a legitimate shipping company, ship’s captain or master, with broken English and an attachment. The attachment, under normal circumstances should be ship’s logistics information. In others however, it’s a key logger that steals credentials, clipboard contents, and documents.
