+ - The Latest Wave of Cyberattacks on the West Is Coming from the Middle East ->

Submitted by Daniel_Stuckey
Daniel_Stuckey (2647775) writes "A hacker group from the Middle East known as Molerats attacked a wide range of major public sector organisations over April and May, including the BBC and a smattering of European governments, researchers revealed today. The latest attacks, which sought to establish espionage operations on targets’ digital infrastructure, took place between 29 April and 27 May, according to security technology vendor FireEye. The Molerats’ actions have added weight to concerns around growing cyber capability stemming from the Middle East. Yet researchers are somewhat perplexed as to the motivation of the perpetrators, whose targets included both Israel and Palestine, as well as Turkey, Slovenia, Macedonia, New Zealand and Latvia. The hackers also went after government bodies in the US and the UK."
