Malware distributor Storm-0324 facilitates ransomware access

Are you prepared for Storm-0324, an active cyber-crime group that infiltrates networks and acts as a distributor for other attack payloads, including ransomware and infostealer payloads. Beginning in July 2023, Storm-0324 was observed distributing payloads using an open-source tool to send phishing lures through Microsoft Teams chats. Because Storm-0324 hands off access to other threat actors, identifying and remediating Storm-0324 activity can prevent more dangerous follow-on attacks like ransomware. In this blog, we provide a comprehensive analysis of Storm-0324—a cyber-criminal group—and their established tools, tactics, and procedures (TTPs) as well as their more recent attacks. To defend against this threat actor, Microsoft customers can use Microsoft 365 Defender to detect Storm-0324 activity and significantly limit the impact of these attacks on networks. Read this Microsoft article to find out how to defend against this complex threat.

Tech Tip Tuesday - 3 essential rules for all cloud applications!

Are you using any kind of cloud application? Well, in today's world, it's hard not to. But here's the thing - data privacy and security should always be a concern. While the company hosting your data has the responsibility to keep hackers at bay, most cloud breaches happen because of user mistakes. So let's make sure you're being smart about your security in the cloud. Here are a few easy steps you can take to improve it:

1. Set up multifactor authentication. And hey, make sure your password is strong too! None of that "Password123!" nonsense, okay? Let's have at least eight characters with a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. We don't want any easy cracks for hackers, do we?

2. Now, pay attention to the device you're using to access the application. It has to be secure! This is an area where you might need professional help. Install and maintain advanced security features that go beyond your usual firewall, antivirus, and spam-filtering software. Oh, and please don't access your cloud application from a device you also use for social media and free email accounts. Let's keep things separate, shall we?

3. One more thing, make sure you back up your data. I'm serious. If your data is important, download and store it somewhere else. Just in case your account gets hacked, your data gets corrupted, or even worse, your cloud company shuts down your account. It's always good to have a copy, just in case.
