Gaza Cybergang Blends Sophistication Levels in Highly Effective Spy Effort
Kaspersky Lab has released new research on an Arabic speaking advanced persistent threat group (APT) engaged in cyber-espionage. The group, dubbed the Gaza Cybergang, has been active since 2012 and has already targeted around 240 high-profile victims, including “embassies, government entities, media outlets and journalists, activists, political parties and individuals, as well as education, banking, healthcare and contracting organizations” in 39 countries across the globe.
According to the researchers, the Gaza Cybergang is politically motivated and consists of at least three different subgroups. The campaign mostly targets “the Middle East and North Africa, with a particular focus on the Palestinian Territories.”
