Security researchers at Kaspersky have uncovered a new cyber-mercenary group that they claim has been providing hacking services for hire for almost a decade.
Dubbed “Deceptikons,” the APT group isn’t particularly sophisticated from a technical perspective and isn’t known to have deployed any zero-day threats during that time, the Russian AV vendor said in a Q2 round-up report.
“The Deceptikons infrastructure and malware set is clever, rather than technically advanced. It is also highly persistent and in many ways reminds us of WildNeutron,” the firm said.
