Iranian campaign snooped on U.S. officials


Threatpost - (International) iSight Partners researchers released a report stating that attackers from Iran created and ran a sophisticated cyberespionage campaign since at least 2011 targeting government officials, diplomats, U.S. military members, and Washington, D.C. journalists by creating fake online personas as reporters, defense contractors, and politicians. The attackers were allegedly able to access systems and gather information as well as email and network logins.
