Shadows in the Cloud: An investigation into cyber espionage 2.0


Today the Information Warfare Monitor and the Shadowserver Foundation have released a report titled "Shadows in the Cloud: An investigation into cyber espionage 2.0. This report details a cyber espionage network that targeted compromises against systems belonging to the Indian Government, Tibetan interests to include those in the Dalai Lama's office, and others. The New York Times first introduced the report yesterday evening.

The report serves as a stark reminder that these underground networks exist and that they are often very successful at stealing highly sensitive information. Unfortunately this type of activity is not atypical and happens globally on a regular basis. We highlighted that the advanced persistent threat (APT) is all too common earlier this year in a post on cyber espionage.
