Kaspersky Lab has launched an online service to bring together all the information it has about the most sophisticated cyber campaigns. This interactive Targeted cyberattacks logbook contains all the research and analysis from the company’s Global Research and Analysis Team. Presently, the portfolio covers 29 major targeted attacks, including high-profile campaigns such as Regin, Darkhotel, Cloud Atlas, and many others.
Speaking about the service, Alexander Gostev, Chief Security Expert at Kaspersky Lab, said, “Four years ago we could regard targeted cyber campaigns as one-offs, but now we are investigating more and more of these incidents every year. They are no longer unique events; they have found a special niche in the world of cyberthreat and demand special attention. That’s why we are launching this new online service. We want to demonstrate the scale of sophisticated cyber campaigns and provide a means of evaluating their growth and reach. In 2014 alone, we recorded more than 4,400 victims of targeted attacks on the corporate sector.”
The service also enables links between different cyber campaigns and retrieves detailed information on each of them, including the geography of infections, the ways in which malware was spread, the cybercriminals’ targets and the special features of each attack. A convenient filter helps to sort the attacks by categories.
