Digital Edge’s Managed Security – response to HIDDEN COBRA- North Korean Remote Administration Tool: FALLCHILL

The Digital Edge Security Team warns that HIDDEN COBRA actors have been using FALLCHILL malware to target IT infrastructures. DHS and FBI specified Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and other indicators of compromise (IOCs) associated with a remote administration tool (RAT) used by the North Korean government—commonly known as FALLCHILL. The U.S. Government refers to malicious cyber activity by North Korea as HIDDEN COBRA. 

HIDDEN COBRA uses dual proxy technique allowing to change vector of the attack and keep the source of the attack hidden.
