Shadowserver Special Reports - Cyclops Blink
February 23, 2022
In May 2018, the US DoJ, FBI and industry partners sinkholed the modular network device infecting malware known as VPNFilter, which Shadowserver has been reporting out for remediation to nCSIRTs and network owners each day since. In February 2022 the UK NCSC, US FBI, CISA and NSA jointly announced the discovery of new network device malware, which they have called Cyclops Blink, and see as a more advanced replacement for VPNFilter. A new Shadowserver Cyclops Blink Special Report was issued to our free daily network report subscribers today, detailing IP addresses believed likely to be infected with the Cyclops Blink malware, and the associated C2 servers.
