Mapping To Carbanak

Carbanak is a threat group that mainly targets banks. It also refers to malware of the same name (Carbanak). It is sometimes referred to as FIN7, but these appear to be two groups using the same Carbanak malware and are therefore tracked separately. Disclaimer: We present this mapping to stimulate thinking about engagement activities to take advantage of the historically observed behavior of adversary, not to present all possibilities. We invite you to use this as a guide, understanding that adversary behavior is constantly changing and evolving.

Note: All ATT&CK Group sub-activity mappings have been remapped to their parent activity and were derived from Group Technique mappings in ATT&CK v8.

ATT&CK® Technique Adversary Vulnerability Engagement Activity Engagement Activity Description
Create or Modify System Process When adversaries utilize or abuse system features, software, or other resources, they may be vulnerable to monitoring or Man-in-the-Middle manipulation Security Controls Alter security controls to make the system more or less vulnerable to attack.
Create or Modify System Process When adversaries rely on particular resources to be enabled, accessible and/or vulnerable, they are vulnerable to their operations being disrupted if the resources is disabled, removed, or otherwise made invulnerable. Baseline Identify key system elements to establish a baseline and be prepared to reset a system to that baseline when necessary.
Create or Modify System Process When adversaries discover enabled, accessible, or intentionally weakened/overly permissive resources in the environment, they are vulnerable to reveal additional or more advanced capabilities when exploiting or using said resource Security Controls Alter security controls to make the system more or less vulnerable to attack.

Remote Access Software When adversaries interact with the environment or personas, they are vulnerable when they collect, observe or manipulate system artifacts or information. Manipulated data may cause them to reveal behaviors, use additional or more advanced capabilities against the target, and/or impact their dwell time. Decoy Artifacts and Systems Introduce impersonations to expand the scope of a deceptive story.
Remote Access Software When adversaries interact with the environment or personas, they are vulnerable to collecting, or in someway interact with, manipulated or decoy data.

Remote Access Software When adversaries interact with engagement environments and personas, their future capability, targetting, and/or infastructure requirements are vulnerable to influence Decoy Artifacts and Systems Introduce impersonations to expand the scope of a deceptive story.
Signed Binary Proxy Execution When adversaries utilize or abuse system features, software, or other resources, they may be vulnerable to monitoring or Man-in-the-Middle manipulation API Monitoring Monitor local APIs that might be used by adversary tools and activity.
Signed Binary Proxy Execution When adversaries utilize or abuse system features, software, or other resources, they may be vulnerable to monitoring or Man-in-the-Middle manipulation Software Manipulation Make changes to a system's software properties and functions to achieve a desired effect.
Signed Binary Proxy Execution When the adversary's malware is detonated, they are vulnerable to dynamic analysis including revealing how the malware interacts with system resources. Detonate Malware Execute malware under controlled conditions to analyze its functionality.
