Social Engineering Spear Phishing

Obvious, but Probably Effective: Konni RAT Screensaver

A North Korean threat actor is targeting users in Russia with a New Year’s Eve-themed phony screensaver file, the Record reports. Researchers at Cluster25 spotted the activity, and say the campaign “started at least from August 2021 aimed at Russian targets operating in the diplomatic sector.” The researchers note that the threat actor used a ZIP file in this spear phishing attack, as opposed to a document with malicious macros.
