The latest risk in cybersecurity phishing attacks comes from the Turla threat group which is mainly comprised of Russian speaking intelligence services. This group may not be new, but they have a novel way of getting in through a backdoor that is installed with a malicious pdf file.
Researchers say this particular phishing attack can be quite problematic as it disguises itself in a pdf container which can elude many data loss prevention products. The malware is intended to monitor any incoming and outgoing emails, gathering information along the way about the sender, recipient, subject and any attachments.
