Now here’s an interesting one. Back in 2013, researchers from the CrySyS Lab discovered a malware that was tied to an extensive espionage campaign believed to have been in place for almost 10 years. The campaign focused on attacking “high profile industrial, research, or diplomatic targets.” After taking a breather for close to four years now, it looks like the same malware might be back at it again after a new campaign was identified, one that uses similar tactics as the 2013 attacks.
