Employee tricked into giving North Korean hackers access to Chile’s ATM over fake Skype job interview
North Korean hackers fooled a Redbanc employee into a fake job interview over Skype and then tricked him into downloading malware onto his work computer to get access to the company’s interbank network, according to a report by Chilean news site trendTIC.
For those unaware, Redbanc is an interbank network in Chile that connects the ATMs of all the banks in Chile.
It all began when the Redbanc employee in question responded to a developer job advertisement on the job website, LinkedIn. When the Redbanc professional clicked to apply for the position, he was contacted by the hackers for an interview, which they conducted in Spanish via a Skype call.
During the interview, the employee was asked to download, install, and run a program named ApplicationPDF.exe on the computer. He was told that it was a part of the recruitment process and would generate a standard application form online in PDF format.
However, the program instead installed malware on the computer, which in turn allowed hackers to gain access to the employee’s work computer username, hardware and OS, and proxy settings. This information was later used to deliver a second-stage payload to the device.
Although this attack took place in December last year, it was only made public after Chilean Senator Felipe Harboe used Twitter to accuse Redbanc of not disclosing the breach in time.
In a statement, the company says “the event had no impact on our operations, keeping our services running smoothly”.
Security company Flashpoint linked the malware strain to PowerRatankba, a malware toolkit that was previously used by North Korea-affiliated hacker group Lazarus. This hacking group which is behind the infamous Sony hack in 2014, have also been accused of attempting to steal money from Banco de Chile last year.

Barracuda, the trusted partner and leading provider for cloud-enabled security solutions, today announced the introduction of Forensics and Incident Response. Available to Barracuda Total Email Protection customers as a value-add, the solution automates incident response and provides remediation options, helping organizations address issues faster, more efficiently, and more effectively.
Attackers often attempt to bypass traditional email security measures by using social engineering tactics — emails that contain no malicious code, attachments, or links, or accounts — or by trying to reuse credentials stolen in an outside data breach or compromised through another threat vector. When an attack like this does slip through an organization’s defenses, administrators need to response quickly.
With Forensics and Incident Response, when users report targeted attacks, administrators can investigate the attacks, find all the affected users, remove malicious emails directly from users’ inboxes, and send alerts to users impacted by an incident with just a few clicks. Plus, discovery and threat insights provided by the platform help identify anomalies in delivered email, giving customers and channel partners more proactive ways to detect email threats.
“Today when security teams learn about email-borne attacks, for most companies, security incident response is a time-consuming, manual process that can take hours or days, which can often lead to further spread of an attack,” said Asaf Cidon, VP of Content Security, Barracuda. “Forensics and Incident Response addresses these problems by arming businesses with the tools and insights they need to handle incidents in a faster, more proactive, and ultimately more effective way that takes minutes instead of hours or days.”
Wilbur-Ellis, a leading global agribusiness company, deployed Forensics and Incident Response to strengthen email security, and their IT team is already seeing the benefits. Before introducing the solution, the IT team at Wilbur-Ellis relied on users to report email attacks that may have slipped past email security. Each day users reported a few attacks, most of which relied on social engineering tactics, and for every one of those attacks the team had to search through tens of thousands of emails to see if any of their 4,000 other users had gotten the same message.
“Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response allows us to find the emails that slip through the filters and remove them as needed,” said Rick Cahoon, Director of Enterprise Security and Support at Wilbur-Ellis. “Knowing who got the bad email in our enterprise is now all in the same tool, and remediation is just a couple clicks.”
