Cybercrime, Google: "Phishing against NATO, Russian hackers protagonists"

The IT infrastructure of the Alliance and that of some military forces belonging to Eastern European countries have come under fire from groups attributable to Russia. This was announced in a report published by BigG's Threat Analysis Group. Here's what happened 31 Mar 2022 F. Me

Russian hackers recently attempted to infiltrate the networks of NATO and the defense ministries of several Eastern European countries, according to a report by Google's Threat Analysis Group (Tag). The report does not say which militaries were targeted in what Google described as "credential phishing campaigns." “The campaigns are implemented using new Gmail accounts created specifically for accounts not attributable to Google, so their effectiveness cannot be estimated,” explains Tag. The responsibility for the findings is attributed to a group identified as Callisto or, alternatively, Coldriver. It is the same reality described in 2019 by the Finnish F-Secure Labs as "interested in the collection of information relating to foreign policy and security in Europe". US officials have repeatedly warned that Russia and Russian-backed hacker groups pose a threat, while Russia has denied allegations of growing cyber attacks against Western targets.
