Operation Soft Cell, Libra Cryptocurrency Impersonations, and New Cyber Espionage Activity

Digital Shadows

This week Alex and Phil join Harrison to discuss Operation Soft Cell, a campaign that has been actively compromising telecommunications organizations since early 2017. Other highlights from the week include focus on a new cyber espionage campaign, known as Operation BouncingGolf, targeting Middle Eastern individuals’ mobile devices; the Russia-associated threat group “Turla”, which has demonstrated new tools and capabilities in three campaigns; and media allegations that the United States Cyber Command has targeted Iranian espionage groups.

The team ends the week with a discussion around some new research Alex put out around Libra cryptocurrency impersonations. Check out Alex’s blog at https://www.digitalshadows.com/blog-and-research/facebooks-libra-cryptocurrency-cybercriminals-tipping-the-scales-in-their-favor/
