CloudWizard is a sophisticated malware discovered in May 2023, believed to be unleashed by a mysterious threat actor operating out of Ukraine. This malicious software framework was designed to target a broader set of victims across the country. It demonstrated an evolution from its predecessors by exploiting well-known cloud services like Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and Dropbox as command and control (C2) servers. The malware can infiltrate systems through suspicious downloads, emails, or websites, potentially stealing personal information, disrupting operations, or holding data hostage for ransom. The current landscape of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) actors involved in cyber-warfare is extensive, with CloudWizard being notable for its activities in the Russo-Ukrainian conflict area. The malware has been linked to several high-profile cyberattacks, including those related to the Israeli-Hamas conflict. Other APT threat actors that have operated in the Russo-Ukrainian conflict region include Gamaredon, CloudAtlas, and BlackEnergy. Kaspersky's analysis of the CloudWizard APT framework revealed its significant role in the campaign within this region. Further investigation unveiled striking similarities between CloudWizard and two other malwares, CommonMagic and Prikormka, which were part of Operation Groundbait. For instance, victim IDs extracted from both CloudWizard and CommonMagic samples contain a date followed by two same letters. Additionally, the names of files uploaded to the C2 server in both malwares follow similar formatting. These parallels suggest a possible connection between these different malwares and hint at a common origin or shared development resources.
