12.000 PHISHING attacks from state-actors during last three months.

Google warned against and detected such attacks,

Also android attacks performed by state hackers are being made public, to make end-users more aware and seek protection.
Found to be most active - USA State actors and state actors from Pakistan.

https://blog.malwarebytes.com/threat-analysis/2019/12/hundreds-of-counterfeit-online-shoe-stores-injected-with-credit-card-skimmer/

So scan every webshop withMagento under 1.9.4.2 & PHP under 5.6.40  here: https://www.magereport.com/
in case of plenty vulnerabilities, do not go there and/or refrain from ever buying fake goods or being scammed out of your money.

If others cannot protect us, we have to fence for ourselves. Forewarned = forearmed.

polonus

Just a random webshop you have to shun because insecure: https://www.magereport.com/scan/?s=https://www.sarezalando.com/
Scan results say HIGH RISK website -> not patched, not installed, unprotected and unmaintained (on purpose as we find out now).

P.S. Not flagged at VT: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/ip-address/141.105.68.82/details
Probably coming from Russia (RBN website "Russian Business Network), not yet on Dr. Webs malicious websites list.

Just watching an infested ad is enough to get infected.
Social engineering does the rest (if you fall for it or aren't using a decent blocker)
Visiting smut sites and then a  fake smut site with malware-installer, portraying as a video-update, will infest you.

Cyberattack hit computers of the Maastricht University in the Netherlands.
Clop ransomware, an AES cryptomix variant, launched by malcreants hiding behind a protonmail address.
Newer variants of the Clop ransomware also will disable av-protection.

The word clop comes from a word "Klop", Клоп in Russian, which is a term for a sort of bloodsucking bedbug,
but in this case it should be taken more to mean an equivalent of the technical term "bug". ????

We are waiting for a decryptor, but if professionally performed AES strenght, it is nearly uncrackable and cannot be defeated.

Infection methods are:
Spam email attachments or hyperlinks;
Insecure RDP connections;
Compromised or hacker-designed websites
Re-packed installers;
Keygens, cracks, and other executables;
Exploit kits, etc.

Authorities have been warning for this dangerous webthreat coming for months now.
And it took Maastricht University by surprise just before Christmas' Eve,

Malcreants/cybercriminal-ransomware-developers do not like their adversaries, they really hate them.

Read: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/resources/idt-sh/hated_and_hunted_the_computer_virus_malware_ransomware_cracker

See for instance how widespread this Syrk ransomware has spread:
