The LookingGlass Cyber Threat Intelligence Group (CTIG) tracked an ongoing cyber espionage campaign named “Operation Armageddon,” thought to be perpetrated by Gamaredon. “Operation Armageddon,” active starting in mid-2013, exposes a cyber espionage campaign devised to provide a military advantage to Russian leadership by targeting the Ukrainian government, law enforcement, and military officials in order to steal information that can provide insight into near term Ukrainian intentions and plans.
What makes this campaign interesting is the motivation for the attacks: obtaining an advantage in kinetic warfare against Ukraine. Through extensive temporal and technical analysis, LookingGlass found evidence that correlates waves of Operation Armageddon with Russian military activity in and around Ukrainian conflict areas. It is clear that Russia continues to advance their information warfare components of their overall modern warfare strategies in order to further their global interests.
This white paper presents overwhelming evidence that Russia has adopted cyber espionage as part of its military doctrine and continues to expand its capabilities.
