Croatian government targeted by mysterious hackers
Threat actors targeted Croatian government employees with spear phishing emails containing malicious links between February and April of this year. The campaign was probably orchestrated by a foreign government and likely resulted in the computers of various targets getting compromised.
The spear phishing emails urged recipients to download a Microsoft Excel document via a provided link. While the file appeared benign, it actually contained powerful malware used by penetration testers to extract valuable information from compromised machines.
