German Firms Suffer Attack from TA547.

TA547, a threat actor famous for financially motivated malicious actions, has attacked dozens of German businesses using Rhadamanthys stealer in a phishing attack aimed at the exfiltration of sensitive data. Reports on the attack vector revealed that TA547 sends victims a compelling email containing the stealer. The email impersonates the German company Metro AG. It includes a password-protected ZIP file containing a ZIP archive that triggers the execution of a remote PowerShell script that launches Rhadamanthys stealer in memory. The attack mode was confirmed in a statement issued by Proofpoint, stating:

“This is the first time researchers observed TA547 use Rhadamanthys, an information stealer that is used by multiple cybercriminal threat actors. Additionally, the actor appeared to use a PowerShell script that researchers suspect was generated by a large language model (LLM).”
