Attacks on Microsoft and Facebook carried out using mobile app development sites

Attacks on Microsoft and Facebook carried out using mobile app development sites

More details are now known about the recent cyberattacks on such large companies as Apple, Facebook, Microsoft and Twitter. Not only were they affected, but also well-known car manufacturers, U.S. government agencies and a candy company.

To penetrate the targeted computer networks the attackers used at least three third-party "watering hole" Web sites.

"The breadth of types of services and entities targeted does not reflect a targeted attack on a single tech or industry sector," Facebook's chief of security, Joe Sullivan, told.

Nearly 40 companies were the victims of such attacks over the last few months. Presumably, the sources of the attacks are located in Eastern Europe or China.

It is still unknown whether all the companies were attacked by one group of hackers or whether these were isolated incidents.

Hackers attacked the companies using mobile app development sites, one of them is iPhoneDevSDK.com. Another portal is devoted to development of applications for Google’s Android operating system. Experts suspect that the computer systems of victims were compromised using a vulnerability in Java plug-in. Subsequently, the PCs of the company's employees were infected with Trojans.

Not every person who visited the third-party sites was a victim of the attacks. The hackers targeted the special category of users.

Currently IT-specialists cannot provide “the whole picture” of the security incidents because the victims do not easily share information with each other.
