$1 million heist on Russian bank started with hack of branch router

A prolific hacking group has struck again, this time stealing close to $1 million from Russia’s PIR Bank. The July 3 heist came about five weeks after the sophisticated hackers first gained access to the bank’s network by compromising a router used by a regional branch.

The theft—which according to is conservatively estimated at about $910,000—is the latest achievement of a group researchers at security firm Group-IB call the MoneyTaker group. In a report published last November that first detailed the group, researchers said its members had conducted 20 successful attacks on financial institutions and legal firms in the US, UK, and Russia. In a follow-up report, Group-IB said MoneyTaker netted about $14 million in the hacks, 16 of which were carried out on US targets, five on Russian banks, and one on a banking-software company in the UK.

While MoneyTaker is skilled at concealing its activities, Group-IB was able to connect the heists by tracing a common set of tactics, techniques, and procedures. After initially gaining access to a target’s network, members often spend months doing reconnaissance in an effort to elevate system privileges to those of a domain administrator. Members also try to remain active inside hacked networks long after the heists are carried out. The attackers also use a variety of freely available tools popular among hackers and security professionals alike, including the Metasploit exploit framework, Microsoft’s PowerShell management framework, and various Visual Basic scripts.

“Fingerprint” of humanity’s climate impact seen in the seasons

One reason climate scientists have been able to confidently determine that humans are responsible for modern warming is that they have more than just weather records to work with. There are many places where a human cause can be identified if you know how to dust for fingerprints. For example, while the lower atmosphere warms, the stratosphere is actually cooling. That’s what you expect when greenhouse gases—rather than the Sun—are behind the warming.

A new study led by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s Ben Santer looked for fingerprints in a new place: the seasonal cycle of temperatures. The ideal tool for analyzing this is the global temperature record produced by satellites, which began their watch in 1979. That means they don’t go back nearly as far as weather-station records, but the dataset is now long enough to be useful for studies like this.

Hot and cold

While everyone uses the same satellites, several different groups actually maintain separate satellite temperature datasets. This is because the measurements are far from straightforward, and a ton of work goes into all the necessary processing to spit out temperature maps. As a result, the different datasets don’t always line up perfectly with each other—or with those analyzed with previous versions of their processing algorithm. So in this study, the researchers used the most recent two versions of three different datasets.
