Cybercriminals attempt to spy on DSM

Written by Nick Farrell



All your chemicals are belong to us


Criminals have been creative as they came up with ways to steal data from chemicals group DSM.

The hackers put USB sticks with spyware in a parking lot of the business and hoped that employees then the sticks in their laptop would do. DSM claims that the result was unsuccessful. What went wrong was the employee who is the first USB stick took it to the IT department who scanned it first.

The malicious software was detected and the IP addresses that the malware communicated to were blocked. The other infected USB sticks were detected. DSM said the attempt was clumsy, but it sounds to us like it was simply lucky. Not all the employees reported the infected USB sticks and they did put them into their company machines.
