Bitdefender releases two threat reports

Authored by Bitdefender discussing two new threats which have recently been discovered – Pacifier V2 and EHDevel.

Pacifier V2 points towards a Russian-linked group called Turla and while the previous sample analyzed by Bitdefender researchers dropped a Trojan using an infected attachment, ESET researchers uncovered a watering hole campaign that instructed victims to install a JavaScript backdoor presented as a Firefox extension. While implemented differently, there were striking similarities to the way the Turla group implements functionalities.

EHDevel is a continuously evolving operation, the latest known victims reportedly being several Pakistani individuals.
