On 22 Novembre 2019, the Italian State Police arrested the cyber-criminal responsible for the “Orziveccho” attack, that was renamed by CNAIPIC “PEOPLE1”.
The “Orziveccho” operation was identified by TG Soft between Saturday 4th and Tuesday 7th March 2017, when was registered more spear-phishing attacks on registry services of many italian municipalities.
TG Soft chose “ORZIVECCHO” as name of this operation, because it was a part of the domain name from which the malware was downloaded: www.scuolaelementarediorziveccho.191.it, it was already used for criminal activities since 2013.
This domain would had to be assigned to Orzivecchi's municipal elementary school, but for a typing error it was registered as “orziveccho” instead of “orzivecchi” and for this reason it was dropped, but instead used by the cyber criminal for its own purposes.
Orziveccho used a remote assistance program, through which it installed a keylogger to steal the municipal employees' access credentials to enter in public administration' portals. Most of the victims have been small municipalities, but in addition to these we can also include the CAF patronages, databases of the Revenue Agency, INPS, INAIL, ACI and InfoCamere.
The cyber-criminal has used various spear phishing campaigns to target and spy Italian municipalities since 2013. TG Soft's Anti-Malware Research Centre has estimated that no less than 10% of Italian Municipalities have been targeted by this Malware-Spy.
Since 2013, the cyber-criminal of "Orziveccho" started using commercial keyloggers for his espionage operations, until he reaches real cyber security experts for implementation of RAT and keyloggers.
The purpose of “Orziveccho” was to steal personal data, tax and social security positions of unsuspecting Italian private customers and companies, in order to be resold to investigation agencies through the portal "People1.info" located in Russia.
TG Soft has declassified the confidential information on the Orziveccho operation (aka PEOPLE1).
