Operation Space Race

Individuals in the Italian aerospace sector were targeted with social engineering attacks delivered through the LinkedIn social network. The threat actor contacted the targets through internal private messages and impersonated a Human Resource recruiter to convince victims to download an attachment containing information about a bogus job offer. The multi-staged operation used PowerShell scripts and executable files to install a RAT (Remote Administration Tool) that was used to exfiltrate sensitive information to command and control servers.
