A new hacker group named Moses Staff has recently claimed responsibility for numerous attacks against Israeli entities, which appear politically motivated as they do not make any ransom payment demands.

The threat actors have repeatedly caused damage to Israeli systems in the past couple of months, infiltrating networks and encrypting files, and then leaking the stolen copies to the public.

As such, the group's apparent motive is to cause maximum operational disruption and damage to its targets by exposing corporate secrets and other sensitive information via dedicated data leaks sites, Twitter accounts, and Telegram channels.

Researchers at Check Point have published a detailed report today on Moses Staff, looking into the techniques, infection chain, and the toolset used by the actor.
