london bridge

Julia Solonina

Britain should be prepared for a Category 1 cyber security emergency, according to the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). This means that national security, the economy, and even the nation’s lives will be at risk. However, despite this harsh warning, UK businesses still aren’t taking proactive and potentially preventative action to stop these attacks from happening. So just where are UK businesses going wrong and can they turn things around before it’s too late?

How businesses have responded

Since Brexit was announced in June 2016, 53% of UK businesses have increased their cyber security, according to latest statistics. This is as a direct result of industry data being published which revealed that malware, phishing, and ransomware attacks will become the biggest threats once Britain leaves the EU. However, despite these efforts being made, figures reveal that British businesses have the smallest cyber security budget compared to any other country. They typically spend less than £900,000, whereas the average across the world is $1.46 million.

At risk of a Category 1 cyber attack

A Category 1 cyber attack is described by the NCSC as “A cyber attack which causes sustained disruption of UK essential services or affects UK national security, leading to severe economic or social consequences or to loss of life.” To date, the UK has never witnessed such an attack. Although, one of the most severe attacks in recent times was the 2017 NHS cyber attack which was classed as a Category 2 due to there being no imminent threat to life. 

The NCSC says that they typically prevent 10 cyber attacks from occurring on a daily basis. However, as the organization believes that hostility from neighbouring nations is what drives these attacks every single day, they say that it’s only a matter of time before a Category 1 attack launches the country into chaos. NCSC's CEO Ciaran Martin states that "I remain in little doubt we will be tested to the full, as a centre, and as a nation, by a major incident at some point in the years ahead, what we would call a Category 1 attack."

This new iteration of Purple Fox that we came across, also being delivered by Rig, has a few new tricks up its sleeve. It retains its rootkit component by abusing publicly available code. It now also eschews its use of NSIS in favor of abusing PowerShell, making Purple Fox capable of fileless infection. It also incorporated additional exploits to its infection chain, most likely as a foolproof mechanism to ensure that it can still infect the system. Purple Fox is a downloader malware; besides retrieving and executing cryptocurrency-mining threats, it can also deliver other kinds of malware.
