2015/04/22

Softpedia - (International) Security researchers from Kaspersky Lab reported that 2014 cyber-attacks against the White House and the U.S. Department of State were part of an advanced persistent threat (APT) campaign dubbed CozyDuke, also known as CozyBear and CozyCar, and could be connected with the MiniDuke campaign that used spear-phishing emails and malicious attachments and Web sites to target the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and European government agencies.
