Dubbed “Operation SnowMan” by FireEye, the attack targets IE 10 with Adobe Flash. According to a recently-released report from CrowdStrike, Strategic Web Compromises (SWC), where attackers infect strategic Websites as part of a watering hole attack to target a specific group of users, were a favorite attack method for groups operating out of Russia and China. FireEye believes the attackers behind the campaign, thought to be operating out of China, are associated with two previously identified campaigns: Operation DeputyDog and Operation Ephemeral Hydra. “A possible objective in the SnowMan attack is targeting military service members to steal military intelligence,” FireEye said."
