Rafel RAT Android Threats, Russian AI Influence, Europcar Fake Data Breach

In today’s episode, we explore the widespread deployment of the open-source Android malware ‘Rafel RAT,’ its exploitation by threat actors like APT-C-35 (DoNot Team), and its impact on outdated devices, particularly Android versions 11 and older. We also explore the influence network CopyCop, potentially aligned with the Russian government, which has pivoted its focus to the 2024 US elections using AI-generated content and fake journalist personas. Lastly, we cover the Energy Department’s cybersecurity guidelines for suppliers and end users to combat rising threats in the manufacturing sector, and the growing trend of fake data breaches, exemplified by the Europcar incident, where hackers manipulated generative AI to create counterfeit customer data.
