Hoodoo, also known as APT41, Winnti, and Bronze Atlas, is a threat actor backed by the Chinese government that has been involved in multiple cyber-espionage campaigns. The group has targeted various entities globally, including a Taiwanese media organization and an Italian job search website. In October 2022, Google's Threat Analysis Group (TAG) successfully disrupted one of Hoodoo's campaigns, indicating the group's significant threat potential and the ongoing efforts to counteract their malicious activities. Hoodoo's tactics include phishing emails containing links to password-protected files hosted on Drive, as was seen in their attack on the Taiwanese media company. In July 2022, they used GC2 to target an Italian job search website. Interestingly, Hoodoo, like other advanced persistent threat (APT) organizations from China, does not build its own unique tools but rather leverages publicly accessible tooling such as Cobalt Strike and other penetration testing software available on sites like Github. Trend Micro, a global cybersecurity company, has identified Earth Longzhi as a subgroup within Hoodoo, further highlighting the complex structure and extensive reach of this threat actor. These findings underline the necessity for robust cybersecurity measures across industries and nations to protect against such sophisticated threats. As these groups continue to evolve and adapt their strategies, ongoing vigilance and proactive defense are crucial to mitigating their impact.
