Malicious cyber activity of Iran-based Mabna Institute

According to information derived from an FBI investigation, a group of malicious cyber actors working for the Iran-based Mabna Institute (Mabna) have been conducting coordinated and broadly targeted password spray attacks against organizations in the United States and abroad. Victims of Mabna often lack multi-factor authentication (MFA), lack preventative network activity alerts, and allow easy-to-guess passwords (e.g., “Winter2018”, “Password123!”).
