BadPatch is a malicious software (malware) associated with the Gaza Hackers. This malware is designed to exploit and damage computers or devices, often infiltrating systems through suspicious downloads, emails, or websites without the user's knowledge. Once inside, it can steal personal information, disrupt operations, or even hold data hostage for ransom. The malware can be viewed by AutoFocus users using the "BadPatch" tag. In a notable shift in tactics, the Gaza Hackers have begun utilizing vulnerability exploits in their campaigns, a first for this group. Specifically, they used the RTF exploit CVE-2012-0158, as documented by Citizenlab, to download their BadPatch Windows malware from the compromised WordPress site wp.piedslibres[.]com/wp/wp-includes/js/Next.scr. This represents a significant escalation in the sophistication of their attack methods. The Lookout Threat Lab has attributed several mobile malware families to Arid Viper, an entity linked to the Gaza Hackers. These include DesertSpider, DesertScorpion, ReboundRAT, FrozenCell, HoneyRAT, RedFox, and notably, BadPatch. This further underscores the broad reach and diverse arsenal of tools that these threat actors possess, emphasizing the need for robust cybersecurity measures.
