What Are the DNS Artifacts Associated with APT36 or Earth Karkaddan?
APT36 or Earth Kardakkan has been targeting government entities, most especially in India, for a couple of years now. But so far, only a few digital properties have been publicized as indicators of compromise (IoCs).1, 2
Using those IoCs as a basis, our DNS-based deep dive into the threat revealed:
- An unredacted domain registrant email address that led to the discovery of 10,000+ domains that could be connected to the threat
- The domain IoCs’ IP resolutions, which allowed us to uncover hundreds of other possibly connected domains
- Close to 70 of the potentially related web properties were dubbed “dangerous” by various malware engines
