The Cyber Operations Tracker has just been updated. This update includes the state-sponsored incidents and threat actors that have been made public between March and July 2021.
Here are some highlights:
In August, Iranian threat actor Charming Kitten used WhatsApp exploits and Android malware to spy on reformist politicians in the country.
Russian hackers launched spearphishing attacks against Slovakian diplomats by posing as the Slovakian National Security Authority.
Afghan telecommunications provider Roshan was targeted by two separate Chinese threat actors throughout 2020 and 2021, with a spike in threat actor activity detected coinciding with the U.S. withdrawal from the country in August and September 2021.
