Cybersecurity firm exposes Iranian group attacking telcos
Cybersecurity firm FireEye claims to have identified an Iranian hacking group which is attacking telcos around the world.
FireEye exposed the group called ‘APT39’ last month. APT39’s main goal appears to be stealing personal information.
According to FireEye, this goal makes APT39 somewhat unique. Other Iranian hacking groups tracked by the cybersecurity firm are linked to influence operations, disruptive attacks, and other threats.
