    An Advanced Cyber Espionage Network Targeting Diplomatic and Government Agencies

    The "Red October" Campaign - An Advanced Cyber Espionage Network Targeting Diplomatic and Government Agencies

    Kaspersky Lab’s researchers have spent several months analyzing a malware campaign that has been active during the past five years. It’s a high-level cyber-espionage campaign that has successfully infiltrated computer networks at diplomatic, governmental and scientific research organizations, gathering data and intelligence from mobile devices, computer systems and network equipment. The malware targets specific organizations mostly in Eastern Europe, former USSR members and countries in Central Asia, but also in Western Europe and North America. The campaign, identified as “Rocra”, short for “Red October,” is currently still active with data being sent to multiple command-and-control servers, through a configuration which rivals in complexity the infrastructure of the Flame malware. All Kaspersky Lab customers ARE protected from this threat. Read more about this ongoing campaign.

    To make mistakes is human. To blame someone else for your mistake, is strategic.

    Israel is also in the grey. That's probably because we were behind it, but you didn't hear that from me.....
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.

    US also has only diplomatic/embassy icon. That doesn't necessarily mean US was the victim.

    This is really getting serious now. Stuxnet, Flame and now Rocra. Guess every country now has to establish a cyber army of its own.
