A recent indictment revealed how the GRU (Russia’s Military Intelligence agency) used both influence operations and network intrusions to achieve its policy aims. More precisely, the GRU weaponized the use of the network intrusions in its influence operations. The indictment goes into detail about the TTPs (Tactics, Techniques and Procedures) used by the attackers and it is worthwhile to pay careful attention to the adversary tradecraft that was used and how it can be defended against. For this blog we have used the MITRE ATT&CK™ framework as our methodology to play back the findings of the indictment: https://www.digitalshadows.com/blog-and-research/mitre-attck-and-the-mueller-gru-indictment-lessons-for-organizations/
