The mysterious global cyber espionage operation known as "Red October" appears to be ending. After being revealed by online security giant Kaspersky Labs on Monday, the operation is being dismantled, according to researchers.
"Red October is disappearing quickly," wrote Claudio Guarnieri, a security researcher at Rapid7. "I think the infrastructure has been almost completely dismantled, or at least moved elsewhere."
"On the night between [January] 14 and 15 the Red October infrastructure started to disappear," Costin Raiu, a Kaspersky Labs senior security researcher confirmed to Mashable. "Domains are actively being shutdown," Kurt Baumgartner, another Kaspersky researcher, wrote in an email.
