VMware issued urgent new mitigation measures and guidance on Sept. 29 for customers of its vSphere virtualization technology after Mandiant reported detecting a China-based threat actor using a troubling new technique to install multiple persistent backdoors on ESXi hypervisors.

The technique that Mandiant observed involves the threat actor — tracked as UNC3886 — using malicious vSphere Installation Bundles (VIBs) to sneak their malware onto target systems. To do so, the attackers required admin-level privileges to the ESXi hypervisor. But there was no evidence that they needed to exploit any vulnerability in VMware's products to deploy the malware, Mandiant said.

Wide Range of Malicious Capabilities

The backdoors, which Mandiant has dubbed VIRTUALPITA and VIRTUALPIE, enable the attackers to carry out a range of malicious activities. This includes maintaining persistent admin access to the ESXi hypervisor; sending malicious commands to the guest VM via the hypervisor; transferring files between the ESXi hypervisor and guest machines; tampering with logging services; and executing arbitrary commands between VM guests on the same hypervisor.

"Using the malware ecosystem, it is possible for an attacker to remotely access a hypervisor and send arbitrary commands that will be executed on a guest virtual machine," says Alex Marvi, a security consultant at Mandiant. "The backdoors Mandiant observed, VIRTUALPITA and VIRTUALPIE, allow attackers interactive access to the hypervisors themselves. They allow attackers to pass the commands from host to guest." 

Marvi says Mandiant observed a separate Python script specifying which commands to run and which guest machine to run them on.

Mandiant said it was aware of fewer than 10 organizations where the threat actors had managed to compromise ESXi hypervisors in this manner. But expect more incidents to surface, the security vendor warned in its report: "While we noted the technique used by UNC3886 requires a deeper level of understanding of the ESXi operating system and VMware's virtualization platform, we anticipate a variety of other threat actors will use the information outlined in this research to begin building out similar capabilities."

VMware describes a VIB as a "collection of files packaged into a single archive to facilitate distribution." They are designed to help administrators manage virtual systems, distribute custom binaries and updates across the environment, and create startup tasks and custom firewall rules on ESXi system restart.

Tricky New Tactic

VMware has designated four so-called acceptance levels for VIBs: VMwareCertified VIBs that are VMware created, tested, and signed; VMwareAccepted VIBs that are created and signed by approved VMware partners; PartnerSupported VIBs from trusted VMware partners; and CommunitySupported VIBs created by individuals or partners outside the VMware partner program. CommunitySupported VIBs are not VMware- or partner-tested or supported.

When an ESXi image is created, it is assigned one of these acceptance levels, Mandiant said. "Any VIBs added to the image must be at the same acceptance level or higher," the security vendor said. "This helps ensure that non-supported VIBs don't get mixed in with supported VIBs when creating and maintaining ESXi images." 

VMware's default minimum acceptance level for a VIB is PartnerSupported. But administrators can change the level manually and force a profile to ignore minimum acceptance level requirements when installing a VIB, Mandiant said.

In the incidents that Mandiant observed, the attackers appear to have used this fact to their advantage by first creating a CommunitySupport-level VIB and then modifying its descriptor file to make it appear that the VIB was PartnerSupported. They then used a so-called force flag parameter associated with VIB use to install the malicious VIB on the target ESXi hypervisors. Marvi pointed Dark reading to VMware when asked whether the force parameter should be considered a weakness considering that it gives administrators a way to override minimum VIB acceptance requirements.

Operation Security Lapse?

A VMware spokeswoman denied the issue was a weakness. The company recommends Secure Boot because it disables this force command, she says. "The attacker had to have full access to ESXi to run the force command, and a second layer of security in Secure Boot is necessary to disable this command," she says. 

She also notes that mechanisms are available that would allow organizations to identify when a VIB might have been tampered with. In a blog post that VMWare published at the same time as Mandiant's report, VMware identified the attacks as likely the result of operational security weaknesses on the part of the victim organizations. The company outlined specific ways organizations can configure their environments to protect against VIB misuse and other threats.

VMware recommends that organizations implement Secure Boot, Trusted Platform Modules, and Host Attestation to validate software drivers and other components. "When Secure Boot is enabled the use of the 'CommunitySupported' acceptance level will be blocked, preventing attackers from installing unsigned and improperly signed VIBs (even with the --force parameter as noted in the report)," VMware said.

The company also said organizations should implement robust patching and life-cycle management practices and use technologies such as its VMware Carbon Black Endpoint and VMware NSX suite to harden workloads.

Mandiant also published a separate second blog post on Sept. 29 that detailed how organizations can detect threats like the one they observed and how to harden their ESXi environments against them. Among the defenses are network isolation, strong identity and access management, and proper services management practices.

Mike Parkin, senior technical engineer at Vulcan Cyber, says the attack demonstrates a very interesting technique for attackers to retain persistence and expand their presence in a targeted environment. "It looks more like something a well-resourced state- or state-sponsored threat would use, versus what a common criminal APT group would deploy," he says.

Parkin says VMware technologies can be very robust and resilient when deployed using the company's recommended configurations and industry best practices. "However, things become much more challenging when the threat actor is logging in with administrative credentials. As an attacker, if you can get root you have the keys to the kingdom, so to speak."

Killexams : VMware embraces DPUs to stretch the use of CPUs

While it is clearly early in the game, VMware has made a bunch of moves recently to ensure that DPUs and the smartNICs they enable are an equal part of enterprise networking environments of the future.

VMware is a leading proponent of using digital processing units to free-up server CPU cycles by offloading networking, security, storage, and other processes in order to rapidly and efficiently supporting edge- and cloud-based workloads.

Competitors—and partners in some cases—including Intel, Nvidia, AWS, and AMD, also have plans to more tightly integrate DPU-based devices into in firewalls, gateways, enterprise load balancing, and storage-offload applications.

For VMware’s part, its most accurate DPU moves are part of a strategy to ensure that networking and security are a priority going forward.

vSphere accommodates underlying processors

These include support for DPUs under the company’s flagship vSphere 8 virtualization and vSAN hyperconverged software packages. The idea is that vSphere is going to be the foundation for deploying and managing workloads and running them effectively and securely regardless of what the underlying processor technology is, said Tom Gillis, senior vice president and general manager at VMware. In the end, reduced CPU and memory overhead will lead to more efficient workload consolidation and better infrastructure performance, he said.

“When customers use a DPU to offload computing they save 10-to-20% of their server cores, so that’s the economic argument for using DPUs because in a high-density server environment, the higher your density, the more efficient the DPU becomes, but that’s just the beginning,” Gillis said.

Killexams : Compared: Parallels Desktop 18 vs VMWare Fusion

You can get Windows onto an Apple Silicon MacBook Air.

If you need to run Windows apps on an Apple Silicon Mac, the two best choices are Parallels Desktop 18 for Mac and VMWare Fusion. Here's what you should know about the two tools.

One of the rare issues with Mac ownership in a multi-platform working environment is that you may run into a situation better suited for a Windows desktop. Sometimes you simply can't run certain apps you may need, as macOS-compatible equivalents aren't available. Though other apps may perform the same functions, they may not be the right ones for the job.

There may also be apps that do offer cross-platform support, but the user may prefer the UI of the Windows version over macOS, or the Mac app may not have all of the features of the Windows version.

In the case of gaming, not all titles are developed to run on macOS, with many older games and those produced by small teams potentially being a Windows-only affair for players.

There's also the usability problem, as a long-time Windows user may not necessarily want to learn how to navigate macOS for whatever reason.

This is where virtualization tools step in. Applications that run a virtual machine, allowing users to install Windows on their Mac and run it from within macOS. In effect, the tool acts as a computer to Windows, allowing it access to the resources of the host Mac, but still runs entirely normally.

Two of the biggest names in virtualization for macOS users are Parallels Desktop for Mac and VMWare Fusion. They're both utilities that can get you running Windows on your Mac, but there are differences in how the two operate.

Here's what you should look for when choosing either of them.

But what about Boot Camp?

Boot Camp is Apple's way of allowing users the same goal of running Windows on a Mac. Using Boot Camp Assistant, you can install Windows and the required drivers to a Mac fairly easily.

This is a good system on its own and also free to use, but two big things hold it back compared to virtualization tools.

Boot Camp is viable to get Windows on your Mac. Except for Apple Silicon.

Boot Camp is viable to get Windows on your Mac. Except for Apple Silicon.

For a start, Boot Camp isn't virtualization, as you're creating a partition for Windows and installing it on a drive. This can provide the fastest Windows experience as neither a virtual machine nor macOS is getting in the way between Windows and the hardware.

But, this does mean if you want to switch between Windows and macOS, you will have to shut down one to move to the other. With VM tools, you're running Windows on top of macOS so that you can use both operating systems simultaneously.

The other problem with Boot Camp is that you cannot use it on an Apple Silicon Mac, only those running on Intel chips.

Add in that Microsoft won't be bringing out Windows on ARM with Apple Silicon support, and you're left with using virtualization tools.

Boot Camp is a viable option if you have an Intel-based Mac and don't mind shutting down macOS to get to Windows. Virtualization is the way for anyone with a modern Mac or MacBook.

Parallels Desktop 18 for Mac

Parallels Desktop for Mac is considered the more user-friendly of the two, with little effort required to get up and running with the software.

After installing Parallels Desktop, it then proceeds to set up a virtual machine for Windows 11, downloads Windows, installs it, and gets you up and running in a very short space of time. With a sufficient Internet connection, you could be using Windows within macOS in less than an hour.

Parallels can  obtain Windows 11 onto your Apple Silicon Mac for an easy setup process.

Parallels can obtain Windows 11 onto your Apple Silicon Mac for an easy setup process.

Once set up, you're left with a Windows desktop within a macOS window. Everything looks like a stock Windows installation.

If you have an existing Boot Camp installation, you can incorporate that into Parallels instead of needing to shut down to switch. If you have an Intel Mac, you could even import that Boot Camp installation into Parallels.

The Windows desktop will show files stored on the Mac desktop, so you can easily open and change them within each operating system and directly impact the counterpart in the other. There's also disk space optimization, so you're not going to burn up a lot of capacity with the tool.

There's also the ability to drag and drop files between Mac and Windows and to copy and paste text too. This creates a very seamless working environment between the operating systems.

Parallels can take items from your macOS desktop and make them immediately usable from Windows' own.

Parallels can take items from your macOS desktop and make them immediately usable from Windows' own.

In the window's taskbar, there are options for managing the virtual machine and performing various keyboard shortcuts, control volume, folder access, and so on.

After installation, you can configure the VM instance in various ways, including how many CPUs it uses, graphics resolutions, connected devices, how it shares applications with Mac and many other options.

There is also the option to use what is referred to as Coherence, a mode where you see just the Windows app, not the entire Windows desktop. That means you could have Windows apps appearing as if they're running in macOS, which can be initially confusing but very helpful if you just want to see one app.

If Windows isn't your cup of tea, you could install a Linux distribution with relatively little effort and again have it up and running in a short space of time.

Coherence mode in Parallels allows you to run Windows apps (like Microsoft Edge) as if they're macOS apps.

Coherence mode in Parallels allows you to run Windows apps (like Microsoft Edge) as if they're macOS apps.

Parallels Desktop 18 for Mac is offered in three versions: Standard Edition, Pro Edition, and Business Edition. You'll get most of what you want from Standard Edition, but the other two have more advanced features aimed at enterprise users.

For example, while the $99.99 Standard Edition can manage four virtual CPUs and 8GB of vRAM, the Pro and Business go up to 32 vCPUs and 128GB vRAM.

The $199.99 per year Pro Edition also includes a Visual Studio plug-in for remote debugging, virtual networking tools, automation elements, integrations with Docker and others, and premium phone support, among other factors.

For $149.99 per year, Business Edition includes the Pro Edition's features, allowing employees to obtain preconfigured versions of Windows to their Mac, per-user licensing, a centralized administration and management tool, and unified volume license keys for mass deployment.

VMWare Fusion

For quite some time, VMWare Fusion was considered equal to Parallels in terms of virtualization on Mac. The problem is that, since the release of Fusion 12, it's stalled in place.

Yes, Fusion 12 from late 2020 could run Windows on an Intel Mac, but Apple has progressed considerably and onto its own chips.

While progress has been slow, VMWare has slowly been working towards releasing a version of its software made so that it functions on Apple Silicon, which is available in a Public Tech Preview.

The good news is that it's free to try out the tech preview. The bad news is that it's not easy to start with Windows on Apple Silicon.

For a start, it works on the basis that you're going to provide the operating system to install, be it a Linux distribution or Windows. So you're going to have to obtain that from Microsoft via its Windows Insider program.

Installing operating systems in VMWare Fusion is a little more involving. And then there's Windows 11 for ARM...

Installing operating systems in VMWare Fusion is a little more involving. And then there's Windows 11 for ARM...

Then you have to follow a set of instructions that had to be picked up via a Google search, rather than anything official. This guide on Cellular.FM describes the extremely long process you have to undertake to get to running Windows 11 via VMWare Fusion's tech preview.

In short, it explains to obtain the Windows 11 ARM64 Insider Preview, how to install Homebrew on your Mac to install QEMU, and using QEMU to convert the Windows VHDX file to a VMDK instead. Then you have to install Windows to VMWare Fusion, taking care to disable Internet access otherwise it won't work, and then follow other procedures to install VMWare's tools to get the final bits set up.

Understandably, a tech preview could require a bit more effort than a full public release, but this is beyond the reach of most average users.

The annoying thing is, once you've got Windows 11 ARM64 installed, it works perfectly adequately. It's just the journey that's the problem.

As a more admin-focused tool, it's also understandable that there are a lot of things you can configure within the software. And again, some of this is not end-user-friendly to deal with, but you don't have to touch the more complex items.

The interface can get a little complex, but VMWare does skew towards professional usage instead of home users.

The interface can get a little complex, but VMWare does skew towards professional usage instead of home users.

Given VMWare's very corporate-focused approach and leaning away from VMWare Fusion's development, it may be quite some time before the Apple Silicon adoption by the main release will happen.

Hopefully, whenever that does occur, VMWare will also make it a lot easier to get going with Windows on an Apple Silicon Mac.

Aside from the technical preview, VMWare still offers the proper Fusion 12 releases for use.

Fusion 12 Player is its most basic release, providing all of the essential functionality you need, including installing multiple VMs, DX11 and OpenGL4.1 support for 3D graphics, and snapshots.

VMWare offers a commercial license for Player at $149, but for home users who will use it for non-commercial reasons, a free license can be acquired instead.

Fusion 12 Pro adds features like creating and managing an encrypted VM, virtual network customization, connections to vSphere and ESXi Server, linked and full clones, remote vSphere host power control, and other more admin-based elements.

Pro costs $199, while a version with one year of technical support assistance and access to knowledge base articles is $241.

Not a close race

If you're a home user, you're presented with two options for virtualization on Apple Silicon. However, it's very hard to advise anyone to go down the route of VMWare Fusion at this point.

It's one thing to have a solid toolset in place for Intel Macs, but it's quite another to leave Apple Silicon users out in the cold with a tech preview for devices that are nigh two years old.

Not to mention that getting Windows 11 for ARM running on VMWare requires so many steps and messing about in Terminal and the Windows command line to be intimidating to some end users.

Parallels may not be free, but the straightforward process to get started with Windows on Apple Silicon is a world away from the more challenging VMWare experience. The Coherence mode to get Windows apps on the macOS desktop is just a cherry on top.

Even if VMWare brings out Fusion 13 with Apple Silicon support, complete with another free-for-non-commercial license, it will have to do a lot to make itself more user-friendly to become recommendable.

Sure, administrators and more technically-minded users will find VMWare Fusion's system a good thing to try, even through morbid curiosity. But for people who just want to run Windows on their Apple Silicon Mac, Parallels Desktop 18 for Mac is the better choice.

Where to buy

Parallels Desktop for Mac starts at $69.99 when you upgrade to the latest version and $99.99 for new license purchases. Students can save up to 50% on the academic version.

Paid VMware Fusion plans, meanwhile, start at $79 for Player upgrades and cap out at $241 for a new license to the Pro plus Support plan. A free Personal Use License is available with a valid MyVMware account for home users participating in non-commercial activity. And if you have a valid Parallels license, VMware is offering 40% off its Fusion line when you switch.

"However, nearly half of the world remains unconnected. Through our partnership with VMware and Mitacs, we're looking to work with Canadian competitors interested in tackling this critical humanitarian issue."

The 2023 Challenge will kick-off in spring 2023, including the challenge specifically dedicated for Canadian researchers that has been jointly developed by the IEEE, VMware and Mitacs.

The Honorable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry of Canada, welcomed the opening of the VMware Next G-AI Research and Innovation Centre, adding, "Canada is a global leader in great talent, especially in emerging areas of technology like artificial intelligence and machine learning. This investment will further strengthen our ability to tackle some of the most important challenges facing our society, including the resilience of our communications network, and ultimately support Canadians across the country."

"With some of the top researchers and a pool of more than 27,000 highly qualified talents, Montréal's world-renowned expertise in artificial intelligence has a lot to offer to develop sustainable and accessible 5G+ and 6G technologies," said Stéphane Paquet, President and CEO, Montréal International.

"The past two and a half years have shown us how reliable internet connections are vital to our well-being. This new Research and Innovation Centre puts our metropolis, once again, on the map as a city where knowledge and talent are dedicated to responding to pressing issues with the highest standards of quality."

"VMware's decision to establish its Next G-AI Research and Innovation Centre in Quebec demonstrates the attractiveness and expertise of Quebec in the technology sector. The Investissement Québec International teams are proud to have supported and guided VMware in the development of their project. The establishment of the Centre will advance important research towards 6G networks and provide opportunities for Quebec startups to test and develop their technology," said Hubert Bolduc, President of Investissement Québec International.

Killexams : CrowdStrike CEO: Broadcom-VMware Deal Drawing worried Customers

Security News

Jay Fitzgerald

But VMware’s CEO counters that rivals poaching customers is “common” and “expected” after merger announcements.

CrowdStrike chief executive George Kurtz says his cybersecurity company is fielding inquiries from a number of VMware customers nervous about the pending Broadcom-VMware mega-merger now before regulators.

At The Channel Company’s Best of Breed conference in Atlanta this week, Kurtz, who’s known for calling out rivals and others for their perceived shortcomings, was asked during a panel discussion his thoughts on the giant Broadcom-VMware deal, which would include VMware’s Carbon Black unit that provides cloud-native endpoint security.

Kurtz, whose Austin, Texas-based company is a Carbon Black competitor, said the merger deal is obviously “huge” for the industry, assuming it’s finally approved by federal regulators who are now reviewing the proposed $61 billion transaction.

But he indicated his company is clearly a potential beneficiary of the proposed Broadcom-VMware deal, particularly since many believe the San Jose, Calif.-based Broadcom’s prior acquisition of security firm Symantec didn’t go as well as some customers and partners had hoped.

Saying he doesn’t “mince a lot of words,” Kurtz said many customers seem to be exploring their options following last May’s announcement that Broadcom intended to buy VMware.

“We got a lot of customers that have called us (and) said, ‘Hey, I’m concerned about the Carbon Black acquisition. We lived through the Symantec acquisition. We know what’s going to happen.’ Prices are going to go up, service is going to go down,” Kurtz told hundreds of vendors, channel partners and others attending the Best of Breed conference in Atlanta.

“We’re actively working on replacement deals right now,” said Kurtz, adding such activity represents yet “another opportunity for the partner community.”

After the panel discussion, Kurtz told CRN that customers are clearly on edge about the Broadcom-VMware deal.

“They’re concerned about the acquisition, as most customers are, and they’re looking for alternative solutions,” he said

Asked what customers were most concerned about regarding Broadcom’s takeover of VMware, Kurtz said: “Being looked after. Right? Being looked after.”

It’s not unusual to see such concerns and business activity following a major merger announcement, he said. “Obviously, there’s always a transition period and disruption from a customer perspective.”

Kurtz added: “We’re obviously helping customers. If they have potential challenges with their current vendors, that’s what we’re focused on.”

At a later Best of Breedpanel in Atlanta, VMware CEO Raghu Raghuram dismissed Kurtz’s comments, saying “you wouldn’t be doing your job” if you headed a company like Crowdstrike and didn’t try to take advantage of a merger.

“It’s common,” he said of rivals trying to poach customers from each other. “It’s expected. Nothing surprising.”

In the end, he said customers will end up appreciating how well the Carbon Black technology integrates with Broadcom’s other offerings.

In response to questions from The Channel Company founding partner Robert Faletra and CRN executive editor of news Steven Burke, Raghuram told Best of Breed audience members that any channel partners and customers with questions about the post-merger VMware can contact his company to get answers.

He also noted that VMware has been negotiating renewal contracts with locked-in prices, in case some customers are worried about higher post-merger prices.

Raghuram stoutly defended the merger benefits for both Broadcom and VMWare.

He said that Broadcom, known primarily as a chipmaker, gets a top-notch software company in the deal as it seeks to broaden its offerings. Meanwhile, VMware gets the backing of a deep-pocketed owner who can help his firm increase its R&D and offerings.

In a statement, a Broadcom spokesman said: “The combination of Broadcom and VMware is about giving customers choices and greater flexibility to address their most complex IT infrastructure challenges. Following transaction close, we will enable enterprises to accelerate innovation and expand choice by addressing their most complex technology challenges in this multi-cloud era.”

Ron Dupler, CEO of Greenpages Technology Solutions, a Portsmouth, N.H.-based MSP and consulting firm focused on the cloud and cybersecurity, said a merger as big and important as the Broadcom-VMware deal was bound to attract attention and controversy.

“Anytime a major force in the industry like VMware gets acquired (it) raises fear, uncertainty and doubt about what’s going to change,” said Dupler, whose firm doesn’t partner with VMware or CrowdStrike. “There’s a lot of wait and see going on.”

He added that the future success of the merger ultimately comes down to how Broadcom handles VMware’s technology and services in the long-run.

Killexams : Gitex Global 2022: VMware shows the way for cloud transformation

The company demonstrates how to accelerate cloud transformation, empower hybrid workforce, and help customers innovate faster and drive their transformation plans



Ahmed Auda, Vice-President and General Manager, Middle East, Turkey & North Africa, VMware

Published: Sat 15 Oct 2022, 3:47 PM

Last updated: Mon 17 Oct 2022, 11:10 AM

VMware is a leading provider of multi-cloud services for all applications (apps), enabling digital innovation with enterprise control. The company is headquartered in Palo Alto, California. It has regional offices in Dubai, Riyadh, Doha, Cairo, Istanbul, and over 730 employees in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey (MENAT) region.

At Gitex Global, which ended in Dubai on Friday, VMware had a strong focus on customer innovation and demonstrated how attendees can accelerate cloud transformation, empower the hybrid workforce, and connect and secure their apps, enabling them to innovate faster and drive their transformation plans.

VMware also had a presence at Global DevSlam, a transformational project by the UAE government to help coders become strategic enablers of the UAE digital economy, which ran alongside GITEX at Dubai World Trade Centre.

At DevSlam, VMware showcased its Tanzu portfolio, a modular, cloud native application platform that enables vital DevSecOps outcomes in a multi-cloud world.

Khaleej Times spoke with Ahmed Auda, Vice-President and General Manager, Middle East, Turkey & North Africa, VMware, on the sidelines of the biggest technology event in the Middle East.

Edited excerpts from the interview:

How are organisations in the region performing in terms of their digital transformation journey?

It varies significantly between organisations; some are more advanced than others in their adoption of digital solutions. In general, in the Middle East region, the majority of medium to large organisations are in the process of adopting digital solutions but still have a long way to go, and in any case, digital transformation is very much a continuous process. While many organisations are good at implementing specific projects, they are not always effective in terms of connecting the dots and designing and implementing a more holistic transformation plan.

What are some of the key challenges organisations face as they transform?

One of the main challenges is that today’s digitally enhanced world has accelerated the distribution of people, information and technology. Today, the average organisation is running roughly 500 applications to drive their business, and those apps are distributed across clouds. While this has delivered new and exciting opportunities for how we work and live, it has put huge pressure on information technology (IT) departments, developers, and security teams who must deliver the digital services people now expect. Given the scale of growth and development in the Middle East, it is vital for all organisations to bring simplicity to their digital systems and ensure that IT is an enabler of innovation and progress.

What are some of the stumbling blocks that organisations commonly run into when trying to transform?

Among the main challenges organisations face that can stall projects is a failure to ensure different teams within an organisation are aligned on the purpose of both the organisation and the transformation project. accurate research from VMware underlines this point: While apps are key drivers of the modern digital economy, and of crucial importance to business leaders, barely a quarter (26%) of the top skills featured in developer vacancies are business-related, and at least 49% of all listings fail to include a single business skill as one of their top 10 requirements. This is according to a European-wide analysis of the top developer job listings from VMware, in conjunction with job intelligence platform Jobfeed, by Textkernel.

What can we take away from the research mentioned above?

One of the learnings is that it is vital for business, developer, and IT teams to work together far more closely. It’s a cultural shift whereby teams should know each other and communicate daily. Further, organisations should also place more importance on developers with business skills to complement their coding abilities. Recruitment efforts must also specifically target developers who can communicate the value of apps to business leaders, given the number of job vacancies continues to grow. These changes are vital if enterprises are to embed apps at the centre of a truly digital-first business strategy.

Which technologies will be the biggest disruptors in the next few years?

In terms of disruptive technologies, Cloud, AI, Machine Learning, 5G and Edge computing will continue to converge and drive immense opportunities. It’s vital for organisations to tame complexity now and embrace a multi cloud approach, which done properly will better equip them to innovate and tap into the potential of the other disruptive technologies.

Killexams : Mandiant unearths new espionage-related malware families affecting VMWare hypervisors

Mandiant has discovered a new ecosystem of espionage-related malware targeting VMware ESXi, Linux vCenter servers, and Windows virtual machines that offers an attacker persistent administrative access, allows them to transfer files between hypervisors and guest machines, tamper with logging and execute arbitrary commands between virtual machines.

The activity, detailed in a report released this morning, is being tracked under a new cluster, meaning Mandiant has not yet tied it to any previously known advanced persistent threat hacking group.

The threat actor appears to be intentionally targeting devices without endpoint detection and response systems. Currently, Mandiant is aware of less than 10 organizations that are infected with the malware, but they expect that number to rise after their disclosure as security teams seek to detect the previously unknown activity.

“As endpoint detection and response solutions Excellerate malware detection efficacy on Windows systems, certain advanced state-sponsored threat actors have shifted to developing and deploying malware on systems that do not generally support EDR [and] most organizations do not have an efficient way to hunt for and identify threats on VMware hypervisors given the lack of EDR support,” said Mandiant chief technology officer Charles Carmakal in a statement.

The activity was discovered during an incident response investigation where Mandiant observed an attacker leveraging legitimate VMWare tools to send commands to Windows guest machines. Later analysis of the hypervisor found that the actor had used malicious vSphere installation bundles, which VMWare describes as “a collection of files packaged into a single archive to facilitate distribution,” to install two different pieces of malware that Mandiant is calling VIRTUALPITA and VIRTUALPIE.

VIRTUALPITA is a family of 64-bit malware that impersonates legitimate VMWare service names and ports, allowing an actor to execute arbitrary commands, upload or obtain files and obfuscate its presence. VIRTUALPIE, written in Python code, spawns a background IPV6 listener on ESXi servers, also allowing for arbitrary command execution as well as file transfer and reverse shell capabilities.

Notably, the vulnerability can’t be executed remotely and requires administrative access, something that makes it significantly harder for most threat actors to use it, though well-resourced hacking groups backed by nation states can often obtain such access in other ways. To that point, there was no apparent evidence that the threat group leveraged a separate zero-day vulnerability to gain administrative privileges.

In a blog this morning, VMWare noted that “Mandiant found no evidence that a vulnerability in a VMware product was exploited to gain access to ESXi during their investigations” and as such, said there is no patch or plans to issue a security advisory or issue a CVE number. The company has developed hardening guidance based on the Mandiant report and said organizations should determine how quickly they should move to implement the guidance based on the context of their environments.

“This malware differs in that it supports remaining both persistent and covert, which is consistent with the goals of larger threat actors and APT groups who target strategic institutions with the intention of dwelling undetected for some time,” the VMWare blog states. “This contrasts with other threat actors and their toolkits who conduct ‘noisy,’ financially-motivated attacks using ransomware. Based on the indications that this new malware was deployed post-compromise, our guidance provides both specific detection and mitigation techniques as well as preventative techniques for strengthening operational security, secure configuration practices, and defense-in-depth.”

The company offered few details regarding attribution or the identity or industries of the victims, saying only that the activity appears to have been done for espionage purposes and that they believe it has a “nexus to China,” an assessment that was made with only low confidence. That language is typically used by threat intelligence companies to convey that they believe a group may be operating from within a country or in ways that further their national interest but can’t conclusively be tied to any particular government.

The Chinese government is known for using a wide variety of hacking teams — some working directly within branches like the Ministry of State Security, as well as criminal hacking groups that may moonlight for or have only informal ties to the government — in a decades-long campaign to spy on private industry in the U.S. and other Western governments, steal data and intellectual property and bolster its own domestic economy. More recently, FBI Director Christopher Wray has said that "the greatest long term threat to our nation’s information and intellectual property, and to our economic vitality, is the counterintelligence and economic espionage threat from China."

Such efforts have been so widespread and impactful that an internal U.S. Navy review in 2019 found Chinese hackers were pilfering so much intellectual property and classified secrets from the Defense Industrial Base that it was "materially eroding" U.S. economic and military advantages.

According to a press release, Mandiant and VMWare worked together to develop more specific technical guidance for hardening VMware servers, and Mandiant also released known indicators of compromise. In addition to finding more organizations infected with VIRTUALPITA and VIRTUALPIE, the company expects other threat groups to follow suit and create their own capabilities for leveraging these vulnerabilities in the future.

“It is critical for organizations to address this threat, as we anticipate other threat actors will develop similar malware capabilities over time,” said Carmakal.
