MiniDuke state cyber-weapon re-used Russian 'Cosmu' Trojan, F-Secure says

John E Dunn | July 7, 2014
Some versions of the mysterious MiniDuke malware discovered last year targeting European governments shared code with a Trojan tracing its origins back to the early years of the commercial Internet, a new analysis by Finnish firm F-Secure has found.

F-Secure hasn't identified any of the individual targets or victims for CosmicDuke but they probably cover the same ones that interested MiniDuke.

"You are a target. Keep calm and secure your stuff," said Sullivan.

It's all a far cry from the recent and far more potent 'Dragonfly' attacks against the industrial control systems of Western energy providers, also traced to Russia. It is becoming clear that Chinese APTs arent the only game in cybertown.
