ThreatConnect Shares Incident Information on the Adversary Obi Onyeka

We have developed TIPpers, which are incidents the ThreatConnect Research team flags for your awareness, so your organization can take decisive action.

TIPper: Adversary Obi Onyeka Spoofs Nigerian University

The website on the domain fintrustplc[.]com is a fake login page for Enugu State University of Science and Technology. (Enugu is the name of both a state in Nigeria and the capital city of that state.) The registrant, Obi Onyeka, uses the location “enugu N/A NIGERIA” on most of his domain registrations, which may suggest that he lives in the state (and maybe the city) of Enugu.  This adversary is associated to the phishing group known as the Manipulaters Team.
