What’s the matter?
The National Cybersecurity Agency of France, also known as Agence Nationale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d'Information (ANSSI) has published a security alert about cyber-espionage campaigns targeting service providers and engineering offices.
A brief overview
ANSSI investigations highlight that attackers are compromising the networks of service providers and design firms in order to access their client data.
“We just published a new analysis report about cyber threats targeting service providers and design offices for #spying purposes. The information provided by the #CTI team in this report is based on #incident response investigations,” Samuel Hassine, the head of ANSSI's Cyber Threat Intelligence division, tweeted.
ANSSI’s report also provides recommendations for service providers, design offices and their clients in order to prevent such attacks.
The second report
ANSSI published another report warning about the credentials gathering campaign targeting government entities via spearphishing emails and phishing websites.
