Kaspersky ICS CERT experts detected a wave of targeted attacks in several East European countries, as well as Afghanistan. Of the six backdoors identified on infected systems, five have been used earlier in attacks attributed to APT TA428.
This is our latest summary of advanced persistent threat (APT) activity, focusing on events that we observed during Q2 2022.
In this report, we present a UEFI firmware rootkit that we called CosmicStrand and attribute to an unknown Chinese-speaking threat actor.
