Operation Arachnophobia

Caught in the Spider's Web

The ThreatConnect Research Team tracks a number of threat groups around the world. Beginning in the summer of 2013, ThreatConnect Research identified a suspected Pakistani-origin threat group. This group was revealed by ThreatConnect Research publicly in August 2013. In the months following the disclosure, we identified new activity. ThreatConnect partnered with experts at FireEye Labs to examine these new observations in an attempt to discover new research and insight into the group and its Operation “Arachnophobia”. The report below is a product of collaborative research and threat intelligence sharing between ThreatConnect Research and FireEye Labs.
