Hackers Go Post-Election Phishing, Turn Off Heat in Finland and Steal Cash From UK Bank

“The Dukes, a group also known as Cozy Bear or APT29, sent series of emails Wednesday after the election, including messages made to look like a Harvard professor forwarding information from the Clinton Foundation. The group sent the emails to many people working in national security, defense, international affairs, public policy, and European and Asian studies. Using Gmail accounts, the groups sent eFax links and Microsoft Word and Excel documents that concealed code that would download a backdoor into attacked systems, according to an analysis by security firm Volexity. Components of the backdoor were hidden in PNG files.  “
