Cyberattacks Traced to Russia and the Kremlin

As the Free Beacon [1] reported:

A group of Russian hackers linked to Moscow’s government have for seven years been targeting intelligence information from governments and organizations in the United States, Europe, and Asia, according to a new report from researchers at F-Secure [2].

The hacking group, named “The Dukes,” employed nine “unique malware toolsets” to hack computer networks and steal data, two of which are new variants that allowed researchers to connect the group to the Russian government.
