Operation GhostShell [ML B-Side]

In July 2021, Nocturnus - Cybereason’s Threat Research and Intelligence team - was called to investigate an espionage campaign targeting Aerospace and Telecommunications companies, mainly in the Middle East. Their investigation resulted in the discovery of a new threat actor that has been operating since at least 2018, and new and sophisticated malware that abuses Dropbox.
Nate Nelson, Our Sr. producer, spoke with Assaf Dahan - Senior Director and Head of Threat Research at Nocturnus - about the investigation.
