The “Red October” Campaign – An Advanced Cyber Espionage Network Targeting Diplomatic and Government Agencies

During the past five years, a high-level cyber-espionage campaign has successfully infiltrated computer networks at diplomatic, governmental and scientific research organizations, gathering data and intelligence from mobile devices, computer systems and network equipment.

Kaspersky Lab’s researchers have spent several months analyzing this malware, which targets specific organizations mostly in Eastern Europe, former USSR members and countries in Central Asia, but also in Western Europe and North America.

Tip of the iceberg… I’m sure we’ll hear about more attacks like these.
