Several state and key industrial organizations in Russia were attacked with a custom Go-based backdoor that performs data theft, likely aiding espionage operations.

Kaspersky first detected the campaign in June 2023, while in mid-August, the cybersecurity firm spotted a newer version of the backdoor that introduced better evasion, indicating ongoing optimization of the attacks.

The threat actors responsible for this campaign are unknown, and Kaspersky was limited to sharing indicators of compromise that can help defenders thwart the attacks.
