Iran-linked group hacked Kuwait, Saudi transport, government entities



Chafer, a hacking group widely believed to have ties to Iran, has targeted air transport and government agencies in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia with attacks going back to 2018, according to security research firm Bitdefender.

Bitdefender said that the methods used, the history of the group, and the targets suggest that the goal of the attacks was likely "data exploration and exfiltration."

"The campaigns were based on several tools, including ‘living off the land' tools, which makes attribution difficult, as well as different hacking tools and a custom built backdoor," according to a Bitdefender security alert. Living off the land tools are legitimate software applications deployed in victims' IT systems, which are used by hackers for their own purposes.
