Chinese & Iranian hackers launched phishing attacks vs. the presidential campaigns of Joseph Biden
Chinese and Iranian hackers have recently attempted to bore in on the presidential campaigns of Joseph Biden and President Donald Trump, using email phishing to potentially get a foot in the door.
Google’s Threat Analysis Group (TAG) said that Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attackers from both online adversaries have sent bogus emails to staffers of Biden’s and Trump’s campaigns. Malicious phishers typically look to trick unwitting victims into revealing passwords and other credentials.
The phishing emails attributed to China and Iran targeting the current presidential campaigns may be one of many. Last October, a hacking group linked to the Iranian government reportedly made unsuccessful attempts to break into Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign infrastructure. The Trump attack was part of a 30-day volley of cyber strikes on hundreds of email accounts belonging to Microsoft customers launched by a cyber crew known as Phosphorus.
