TRITON malware was first identified during an attack on a Saudi Arabian petrochemical plant facility in the year 2017 and it targets Schneider Electric’s Triconex Tricon controllers. This was the first time in history that safety instrumented systems were targeted with the intention to fail, potentially leading to serious damage to property and humans.

TRITON’s toolbox contains eleven of the fourteen tactics mapped by MITTRE ATT&CK Matrix for Enterprise, the universally renowned knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques based on real-world observations. In this, 7th part of the TRITON posts, the Collection technic is presented.
