Iranian hackers using upgraded malware; says Accenture


ISPs and Telecom companies are becoming a new target for the Iranian hackers, and they have been upgrading their malware since July this year to hack into the company’s systems.

The group is known as Lyceum but also goes by Hexane or Spirlin, which has operated since 2017 and has been linked to malicious campaigns targeting Middle Eastern oil and gas companies. 

According to the researchers of Accenture’s Cyber Threat Intelligence group, the hackers have been targeting various companies for a long time from regions such as Israel, Morocco, Tunisia, and Saudi Arabia. Some parts of Africa have also been getting targeted.

“Telecommunications companies and ISPs are high-level targets for cyber espionage threat actors because once compromised, they provide access to various organizations and subscribers in addition to internal systems that can be used to leverage malicious behavior even further,” said security researchers.
