White House hackers 'Russian speakers': researchers

Hackers who penetrated the State Department and White House computer networks in recent months were “Russian speakers,” security researchers said Wednesday. The hackers have aimed at high-profile targets including US government and commercial networks as well as in Germany, South Korea and Uzbekistan, according to researchers at Kaspersky Lab, a Russian-headquartered security firm. Kaspersky said CozyDuke’s coding is related to similar malware MiniDuke and CosmicDuke. Kaspersky Lab was the first to warn about MiniDuke attacks in 2013, with the oldest known samples for this cyberthreat dating back to 2008,” said Kaspersky researcher Kurt Baumgartner.
