The Ukrainian Cyber-police, in coordination with the FBI and Australian law enforcement, conducted in an operation ending with the arrest of the author of the world’s largest phishing service. U-Admin is a phishing toolkit responsible for over 50% of phishing attacks in Australia in 2019 and it was used to attack financial institutions in multiple countries. The toolkit makes fake login web pages that steal victim credentials and can even capture two-factor authentication codes. The 39-year-old Ukrainian man is believed to have sold U-Admin on the Dark Web, in addition to providing technical support during phishing attacks, and now faces up to six years in prison if found guilty. Ukrainian officials have identified over 200 buyers of the malicious software.
