Researchers discover state actor’s mobile malware efforts because of YOLO OPSEC

WASHINGTON, DC —At the Shmoocon security conference here on January 19, two researchers from the mobile security provider Lookout revealed the first details of a mobile surveillance effort run by a yet-to-be named state intelligence agency that they had discovered by exploring the command-and-control infrastructure behind a novel piece of mobile malware. In the process of exploring the malware’s infrastructure, Lookout researchers found iOS, Android, and Windows versions of the malware, as well as data uploaded from a targeted phone’s WhatsApp data. That phone turned out to be one that belonged to one of the state-backed surveillance effort—and the WhatsApp messages and other data found on the server provided a nearly full contact list for the actors and details of their interactions with commercial hacking companies and eventual decision to build their own malware.

Lookout has not revealed the country behind the malware, as the highly targeted collection campaign is still active and exposing it would burn the company’s ability to block the malware and continue to collect intelligence about the organization. Lookout’s Andrew Bliach and Michael Flossman, who presented the findings at Shmoocon, have provided some of the details they have obtained in a blog post, however—and they provide a fascinating look at how a reasonably well-funded state-sponsored intelligence-gathering operation works.

The communications data was left in the open on the infrastructure discovered by Bliach and Flossman; apparently, operational security was not a major concern for the malware operations team behind the effort. As a result, the researchers were able to view communications between members of that team and representatives of a number of zero-day and hacking-services providers as they explored purchasing the tools needed to gain access to their targets. “These messages were uncovered during an in-depth investigation and reverse-engineering effort into the infrastructure and malware tooling that this group built themselves.” Flossman and Bliach wrote in their follow-up blog. “These message also revealed many potential 0-days that a buyer could purchase along with their cost, effectiveness, and seller guarantee for both mobile and desktop operating systems.”

VW’s insane I.D. R electric car is headed to the Nürbugring this summer

2018 was a something of a banner year when it came to hybrids and electric cars showing their stuff. At the end of June, Porsche—on something of a farewell tour after cancelling its Le Mans program the year before—destroyed the lap record at the almighty Nürburgring Nordschleife with its 919 Hybrid. For 35 years, the fastest lap of this 12.9-mile (20.8km) ribbon of road in Germany's Eifel Mountains stood at 6:11.13, set by Stefan Bellof and a Porsche 956 during qualifying for the the Group C race held there in 1983. But in 2018, Porsche returned to one of the most fearsome racetracks in the world intent on beating Bellof's time, and it did; with Timo Bernhard behind the wheel, the 919 Evo lopped almost a minute off, completing a circuit in 5:19.55.

Five days earlier, Porsche's corporate sibling Volkswagen did something similar, this time with a battery electric car. At the annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, Romain Dumas set a new world record for the fastest time up the mountain. Here too, a record many thought unbreakable—Sébastien Loeb's 2013 time of 8:13.878—was eclipsed when Dumas completed the 12.4-mile (19.9km) race to the clouds in 7:57.148.

I was on the mountain that day, and asked more than one VW representative whether they'd consider taking their new electric monster to the Nordschleife. The similarities were too obvious not to ask—similar distances, similar terrifying reputations, and so on. At the time the question was quickly dismissed, and VW's engineers would point out that despite the apparent similarities, there were important differences too.
