Who is GOSSIPGIRL? (Threat Actors)

We have seen multiple examples of this next-level development practice amongst the true apex threat actors.A notable example is appears to be the case of the Wzowski API that allows the CSEC and DSD’s WARRIORPRIDE, GCHQ’s DAREDEVIL, and NSA’s STRAITBIZZARRE and UNITEDRAKE tooling to work together despite independent development practices.With GOSSIPGIRL we’ll be discussing another example of a collaborative threat actor umbrella.As we conducted our parallel investigation into Flame we found ourselves retracing steps from one malware platform to another, much like the researchers that originally discovered them. As such, Stuxnet placed at least two other threat actors within the scope of our research: Duqu and Equation.Researchers connected Duqu to the development of Stuxnet early on.
