In our September 5, 2019, Threat Insight post, “Seems Phishy: Back To School Lures Target University Students and Staff,” we discussed the seasonal uptick of phishing campaigns that are directed at university students and staff, usually between June and October of every year. Since our blog post, colleagues at Secureworks have provided further details on one actor we highlighted, tracked by Proofpoint as TA407, also known as Silent Librarian, Cobalt Dickens, and Mabna Institute. In this blog, we provide additional insight into the actor and their evolving TTPs in ongoing, academia-focused campaigns.
