New ‘Moses Staff’ Hacker Group Targets Israeli Companies With Destructive Attacks

A new politically-motivated hacker group named “Moses Staff” has been linked to a wave of targeted attacks targeting Israeli organizations since September 2021 with the goal of plundering and leaking sensitive information prior to encrypting their networks, with no option to regain access or negotiate a ransom.

The group openly states that their motivation in attacking Israeli companies is to cause damage by leaking the stolen sensitive data and encrypting the victim’s networks, with no ransom demand, Check Point Research said in a report published Monday.
