Have old school malware writers resurfaced? According to Kaspersky Lab CEO Eugene Kaspersky they have, and they are behind the newest cyber attack against governments in Europe through a malware code the Russian internet security firm dubbed “MiniDuke.”
In a statement on their Securelist website, Kaspersky said miniduke is a very unusual cyberattack. I remember this style of malicious programming from the end of the 1990s and the beginning of the 2000s. I wonder if these types of malware writers, who have been in hibernation for more than a decade, have suddenly awoken and joined the sophisticated group of threat actors active in the cyberworld. These elite, ‘old school’ malware writers were extremely effective in the past at creating highly complex viruses, and are now combining these skills with the newly advanced sandbox-evading exploits to target government entities or research institutions in several countries.”
