The attacker has been identified leveraging a number of POC, proof-of-concept, exploit code, shells, and other various tools from open source. These actions are primarily through the use of remote code execution vulnerabilities in unpatched versions of Telerik UI and other Microsoft IIS and Citrix vulnerabilities.
The attacker has shown the capability to find and quickly leverage exploitable public vulnerabilities and regularly conducts reconnaissance of target networks looking for vulnerable services. The attacker might potentially maintain a list of public-facing services to quickly locating the vulnerable services after future vulnerability releases.

- links to credential harvesting websites
- emails with links to malicious files, or with the malicious file directly attached
