"Group-IB recorded mass harmful mailings on the Russian financial institutions allegedly on behalf of the Central Bank of Russia and FINTSERT, structure of Department of information security of the Central Bank" — it is said in the statement. In the morning on November 15, according to Group-IB, hackers carried out mass harmful mailing on the Russian banks from the fake address of the Central Bank of Russia. Banks received letters with the offer to recipients to study the resolution of the "About Unification of a Format of Electronic Bank Messages of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation" regulator. Documents allegedly were placed in the enclosed archive, having unpacked which the user as a result loaded the tool which is used by hackers of Silence – one of the most dangerous hacker groups according to the company. The similar attack was, presumably, carried out on October 23 by hacker group MoneyTaker. From the counterfeit address of FINTSERT letters with investments, stylized under official documents of the Central Bank were sent. "Not less than 52 banks in Russia and not less than 5 banks abroad were recipients of letters. Unfortunately, precisely it is impossible to establish all recipients at the moment. But, based on data on the previous attacks, the attack was conducted, most likely, on more than 100 organizations" — specified in the press service.
