Singapore-based security outfit Group-IB says it has assisted the Moscow Criminal Investigation in the detention of a group of criminals who were re-issuing SIM cards and stealing money from Russian bank customers.
The US Central Intelligence Agency was given a sweeping authorisation to conduct covert cyber operations in 2018 by US President Donald Trump, and since then has hit Iran and other targets, a report claims.
The man called the invisible god of networks aka Fxmsp by the security firm Group-IB compromised more than 135 company networks and sold access to them in 44 countries over three-plus years, raking in at least $1.5 million, the firm says in a detailed document about him. The name is taken from a quote in an ad posted by a user Lampeduza to promote Fxmsp's services: "You will become the invisible god of networks."
