London, 16 Mar - Cyber security researchers have warned that Iranian-based cyber warfare group TEMP.Zagros, aka MuddyWater, is conducting the massive phishing campaign currently attacking both Asia and the Middle East.

This group have also significantly improved their technique, notably by using new backdoor entry tools, making them an even greater danger.

In a blog on Tuesday, FireEye researchers Sudeep Singh, Dileep Kumar Jallepalli, Yogesh Londhe and Ben Read wrote: “We observed attackers leveraging the latest code execution and persistence techniques to distribute malicious macro-based documents to individuals in Asia and the Middle East. In this campaign, the threat actor’s tactics, techniques and procedures shifted after about a month, as did their targets.”

London, 14 Mar - Speaking ahead of his recent trip to Oman to discuss the efforts made by the United States to block Iran’s arming of Houthi rebels in Yemen, US defense secretary Jim Mattis emphasised that Iran is a major threat.

In an interview with National Public Radio, Mattis said that Sultan Qaboos of Oman is a “strategic leader” that understands how the violent extremists in the region, including the Islamic State and al-Qaida, are benefitting from the chaos and disarray in Yemen. He believes that the Sultan will be able to assist in the United States’ attempts to block the extremists in Yemen, especially those fighting in the eastern side of the country, because of the risk that conflict could spill across the border.

London, 12 Mar - Experts believe that Iran is working on a new cyber-attack as there is an increasing amount of activity happening. Iranian hackers are becoming more and more experienced with regards to surveillance operations.

Only last month, the Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said that Iran was the most dangerous nation when it comes to the threat of a cyber-attack. He said: “The most dangerous nation behind cyberattacks? Iran. Iran is the only country that has attacked us repeatedly and tried to attack us repeatedly. In fact, they tried to do it on a virtually weekly basis.”
