Researchers Disrupt Iranian Cyberespionage Campaign
“Researchers at Palo Alto Networks have managed to disrupt an Iran-linked cyberespionage campaign targeting governments and businesses from all around the world.
The security firm reported in May that it uncovered a new malware family that had been used in espionage operations since at least 2007 by a group believed to be located in Iran. The malware, dubbed ‘Infy,’ remained under the radar because it had only been used in highly targeted attacks.
After it published its report on Infy, Palo Alto Networks started working with the entities that hosted the threat actor’s command and control (C&C) infrastructure in an effort to take control of their domains.”
