An analysis of two DHS reports focusing on Russia's reputed interference in the 2016 U.S. election revealed common bonds between the infamous hacking campaign, dubbed Grizzly Steppe, and activity by the Carbanak cyber gang. However, an expert with ESET doesn't think the overlap is significant.
Kaspersky Lab revealed that cybercrime organizations are increasingly stealing funds from banks by employing many of same Advanced Persistent Threat tools and tactics that previously were only attributable to nation-states.
A series of related malware campaigns whose m.o. resembles that of the notorious Carbanak gang has been quietly infecting financial targets since January, including users of the SWIFT bank messaging system, according to Symantec.
