Iran’s Static Kitten Cyberespionage Group Actively Attacking Kuwait, UAE

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Anomali, the leader in intelligence–driven cybersecurity solutions, today announced availability of a new Anomali Threat Research report that details how Iran–backed cyberespionage group Static Kitten is currently conducting a campaign against government agencies in Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and likely the broader Middle East. Among the key findings:

  • Anomali assesses that the Iran–nexus cyberespionage group Static Kitten is likely the threat actor, based on the combination of Israeli geopolitical–themed lures, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) references, and the use of specific tactics and techniques in the campaign.
  • Government agencies in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Kuwait, and likely the broader Middle East are being targeted.
  • Static Kitten is attempting to install a remote management tool called ScreenConnect (acquired by ConnectWise 2015) in target computers.

"The Middle East has long been a flashpoint for cyber and kinetic espionage activities. Organizations that call this part of the world home need to be especially vigilant, as things like growing remote workforces, 5G deployment, and cloud adoption continually expand attack surfaces," said AJ Nash, Sr. Director of Cyber Intelligence Strategy, Anomali. "To remain protected while conducting business in today's cyber landscape, organizations need to have access to intelligence that enables threat analysts to conduct efficient investigations, detect threats, and drive fast response efforts."

Report Urges U.S. and Allies to Recommit to Prevent Nuclear Proliferation

CHICAGO, Feb. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A new report by a task force chaired by Chuck Hagel, Malcolm Rifkind, and Kevin Rudd and convened by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, argues fraying American alliances and a rapidly changing security environment have begun to call into question America's nuclear security guarantees and threaten the long–term viability of the 50–year–old nuclear nonproliferation regime. The report offers specific recommendations and a framework to ensure America's allies will continue to feel secure without requiring their own nuclear weapons.

"In the absence of U.S. leadership over the past four years, our allies are asking questions about the credibility of the American nuclear guarantee," said project director Ivo Daalder, former U.S. Ambassador to NATO and president of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. "A change in administration alone is unlikely to suffice in reestablishing U.S. credibility. The United States must do everything in its power to work with its allies to rebuild confidence in their joint framework for collective defense."

"Recommitting to America's allies requires recommitting to nuclear deterrence," said Hagel, former U.S. Secretary of Defense. "President Biden must reaffirm America's security commitments, reverse decisions that have harmed our relationships, and negotiate fair agreements that will ensure the U.S. can maintain troops in Europe and Asia."

The report, "Preventing Nuclear Proliferation and Reassuring America's Allies," is the product of the Task Force on U.S. Allies and Nuclear Weapons Proliferation, a group of 16 former U.S., European, and Asian foreign and defense ministers and other national security and defense advisers who have been working together for 12 months to develop specific recommendations.

Task force recommendations include:

  • Rebuild U.S. Leadership by reaffirming America's security commitments, raising the importance of nuclear weapons issues in alliances, and building European and Asian defense capabilities.
  • Strengthen European Defense Capabilities by ensuring Europe takes more responsibility for its own defense and security and focuses defense cooperation on real military capabilities. France and Britain should deepen their nuclear cooperation and extend their deterrents to European allies.
  • Coordinate Multilateral Deterrence in Asia with the United States proposing the creation of an Asian Nuclear Planning Group to bring Australia, Japan, and South Korea into the U.S. nuclear planning processes.
  • Expand Multilateral Arms Control with the five Permanent Members of the U.N. Security Council committing to a dialogue on nuclear weapons issues and negotiating nuclear confidence–building and transparency measures, and engaging China in all efforts to multilateralize nuclear arms control.

"While Chinese ambitions are a threat to the security climate, China is an essential part of the conversation," said Rudd, former Prime Minister of Australia. "These first steps could make a significant difference in quelling allies' fears and coordinating deterrence efforts."

"Britain and France have a critical role to play in helping Europe build up the nuclear dimension of its defense and security efforts," said Rifkind, former U.K. Foreign Secretary and Secretary of Defense. "By recognizing European security and vital interests are inextricably linked, the two countries can begin to develop a strong, European–oriented nuclear deterrent capability."

In addition to the cochairs, the task force membership consisted of:

Task Force Members

  • Nobuyasu Abe, former Commissioner, Japan Atomic Energy Commission
  • Carl Bildt, former Swedish Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs
  • Rick Burt, former U.S. Ambassador to Germany and Chief Negotiator for START
  • Espen Barth Eide, former Norwegian Foreign Minister and Defense Minister
  • Franois Heisbourg, former Chairman, International Institute for Strategic Studies
  • Wolfgang Ischinger, former German State Secretary of Foreign Affairs
  • Nobukatsu Kanehara, former Japanese Deputy National Security Adviser
  • Lee Sanghee, former Korean Minister of Defense and Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff
  • Curtis Scaparrotti, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe
  • Radek Sikorski, former Polish Foreign Minister and Defense Minister
  • Sinan lgen, former Turkish Foreign Service Officer
  • Byung–se Yun, former Korean Minister of Foreign Affairs

The task force cochairs and project director are available for interviews upon request. To coordinate, contact media@thechicagocouncil.org.

We Must Make It Happen – Together!

Yasmine Sherif, Director of Education Cannot Wait

By Yasmine Sherif
NEW YORK, Feb 10 2021 (IPS-Partners)

“As we enter 2021, education must be at the core of pandemic response and recovery efforts,” says António Gutteres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, in his interview with Education Cannot Wait (ECW) for this monthly issue, reminding us that “upholding our pledge to leave no one behind starts with education.”

Yasmine Sherif

Indeed, without making inclusive, quality education a priority in the COVID-19 response and recovery for those left furthest behind in armed conflicts, forced displacement and climate-induced disasters, we will see a continued exacerbation of inequalities and a deepened global learning crisis, all while ongoing forced displacement and migration lead to an unprecedented number of children and youth losing access to their inherent human right of an education.

The COVID-19 pandemic has further impacted the marginalization of girls and boys in contexts already affected by crisis, while wealthier children in stable countries have more easily been able to sustain their learning using remote technologies. However, today, a staggering 2.2 billion children globally, or 2/3 of children and youth under the age of 25, do not have access to internet at home, preventing them from accessing online learning during school closures. Today, only 6% of children in low-income countries have access to internet at home compared to 87% in high income countries, while only 5% of children and young people in West and Central Africa have access to internet compared to 33% globally. These figures reveal the stark reality of the huge digital divide in a long-standing learning crisis.

As a result of COVID-19, the learning crisis is now plunging to new depths. During our ECW mission to Burkina Faso in January 2021, we stood face to face with the naked reality of this learning crisis: teachers without the technology and internet access needed, alongside internally displaced and refugee children and youth with no possibility to access remote learning. Their eyes hollow, their hope fading away.

“Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else,” Leonardo da Vinci once said. Education sits at the very heart of all Sustainable Development Goals. Without an inclusive quality education, the world will also drift further away from achieving gender equality, ending poverty, ensuring decent work and economic growth, and from achieving peace, justice and strong institutions – in both conflict- and crisis-affected countries that need it the most to build back better.

In 2016, well before COVID-19, over 600 million girls and boys, including adolescents, were estimated to not be reaching minimum proficiency levels in reading and math. Pre-COVID-19, an estimated 53% of girls and boys in low- and middle-income countries could not read proficiently by age 10. Today, these figures are growing as countries in crisis are falling into the dark abyss of abandonment by the international community – unless it makes bold and morally courageous moves to show unprecedented solidarity and humanity.

The intensification of armed conflicts and climate-induced disasters, forced displacement and migration will deprive millions of children and youth from accessing their right to a quality education. There were 18.8 million climate-related displacements in 2017. The combined and related effects of climate change and conflict are now causing unprecedented rates of displacement. Before COVID-19, refugee children were already twice as likely to be out of school than non-refugee children. Only 31% of refugee children were enrolled at the secondary level, and just 27% of girls.

“Without resolute political commitment by global leaders, as well as additional resources for Education Cannot Wait, and its UN and civil society partners, millions of girls and boys may never return to school. Investing in the education of these vulnerable children and youth is an investment in peace, prosperity and resilience for generations to come – and a priority for the United Nations,” UN Secretary-General António Guterres told Education Cannot Wait in his interview for this newsletter.

Education Cannot Wait, and its UN and civil society partners are investing in their education and we do so together with host governments, local communities, strategic donors, UN and civil society partners and the private sector. In just four years since ECW’s creation, nearly 4 million children have received quality education in some of the most violent wars and most challenging refugee and forced displacement contexts, while another 10 million children benefited from our rapid response to provide remote learning as a result of COVID-19 in 2020.

However, with more funding many more crisis-affected children and youth can be reached. Our biggest challenge is the availability of funds to deliver on the ground through the well-established coordination structure of the United Nations that enables host-governments, local communities, UN agencies and civil society to efficiently mobilize and expand their operations.

It is precisely this coordination structure and collaborative togetherness that have enabled Education Cannot Wait to operate with humanitarian speed in delivering quality, inclusive education across the humanitarian-development-peace nexus through the ‘whole of child-approach’, while giving due consideration to crucial crisis-related factors, such as mental-health and psycho-social services, protection, reaching 60% girls in ECW joint programming and paying special attention to children with disabilities and other marginalized children and youth in emergencies and protracted crisis.

By working through the United Nations’ established coordination structure on both the humanitarian and development sides and bringing these together with our strategic donors, Education Cannot Wait’s investments are implemented through coordination, collaboration and joint programming, wherein each actor contributes with their added value to collective outcomes. In doing so, the New Way of Working is put in action and contributes to real learning outcomes, while reinforcing the Grand Bargain, as local communities are empowered along with national government ministries.

A catalyst and facilitator, the Education Cannot Wait Global Fund offers an example of a rapidly growing and results-driven UN entity (hosted by UNICEF), that has reduced bureaucracy to strengthen accountability in support of multilateral and national efforts under the UN umbrella, where all dots are connected – coming together in a powerful commitment for those left furthest behind.

When realizing that we are ‘stronger together,’ we also become worthy of bringing hope and delivering immediate and sustainable results – or, as the UN Secretary-General António Gutteres concludes his interview with Education Cannot Wait: “We can move from an ‘annus horribilis’ to make 2021 an ‘annus possibilitatis’ – a year of possibility and hope. We must make it happen – together.”
