Tactics and techniques of the bad guys in SCI

Posted on 03/07/2023, by INCIBE
Industrial Control Systems (ICS) were initially designed to work in sealed environments and as stand-alone systems, interconnections between systems were scarce, as were safety protections. The constant evolutions in the field of ICS, including the inclusion of a large number of communication protocols, IIoT devices, the expansion of interconnections, an incessant search for interoperability between systems and the inclusion of these architectures in critical systems, has meant that the networks on which these industrial control systems, has meant that the networks on which these industrial control systems are built, also known as control networks, have increased their security exponentially.

System hardening: the case of Linux

Posted on 03/02/2023, by INCIBE
Knowing the resources available when performing tasks of hardening a system, will allow us to optimize the time necessary to obtain a safer system. In addition, we have the possibility of using tools capable of auditing the system that identifies those configurations that are considered safe and which ones we could implement.

Industroyer2, the ampere strikes back

Posted on 02/09/2023, by INCIBE
Confrontations between countries no longer only take place in the physical world, in this new decade, these confrontations also move to the cyber world. The conflict between Russia and Ukraine is one of the clearest examples. Among the events that have taken place is the security incident known as Industroyer2, which affected an electrical supplier in Ukraine. The Industroyer2 is the evolution of its predecessor, the malware known as Industroyer, which was able to affect multiple protocols of industrial control systems during its execution. This new variant of the malware focuses on a particular communications protocol, IEC-104, which is widely used in Europe and the Middle East to monitor and control the power system via the TCP/IP communications protocol.

Threat analysis study: Hive

Posted on 12/20/2021, by INCIBE
The malicious code of the ransomware known as ‘Hive’ represents a threat to all users, as it implements encryption functionalities on the information in an infected computer, making simple recovery of the data impossible. This threat attempts to use extortion to recover the information, demanding a payment and threatening publication of part of the stolen information on a blog through the network Tor if the payment is not forthcoming.
