The notorious Hacktivists group, Known as Mysterious Team Bangladesh, exploits vulnerable versions of PHPMyAdmin and WordPress.
It conducts DDoS and defacement attacks through open-source utilities and is believed to have carried out over 750 DDoS and 70+ website defacements within a year.
The group has been active since 2020 and targets logistics, government, and financial sector organizations in India and Israel.
The Group-IB Threat Intelligence shared the latest report on Mysterious Team Bangladesh activities.
According to the report, India was the most targeted nation, and the group launched a large-scale campaign against India in May 2023.
It is suspected that the group will expand its operation across Europe and Asia Pacific and the middle east at the end of 2023.
The most common technique utilized by the group to target the victim is DDOS and defacement attacks.
In addition to that, it exploits widely deployed and outdated services, such as PHPMyAdmin and WordPress.
A D4RK TSN threat actor is believed to be behind this group, and multiple active social media pages such as Facebook, Twitter, and Telegram were identified.
The group posted its past and upcoming attacks on their telegram channel which has been active since 2022.
A prime example of a group driven by religious motives is a recent campaign targeting multiple organizations in Sweden, triggered by the incident involving the burning of the Quran.
The percentage of attacks launched by the group is as follows: 88% were DDos,9% were defacement and 2.9% attacks were launched against databases.
In some cases, the group exfiltrated data from the organization and posted it on their Telegram channel.
They have the capability to launch attacks against a large number of targets quickly and assume that it has scripts for the mass exploitation of websites using the same frameworks or server software versions.
