Check Point details Iranian hacker group's ongoing espionage campaign


Check Point Research revealed details on an Iranian hacker group that has developed tools to steal information from Windows systems, Telegram and even via SMS.


According to the researchers at Check Point, these hacking tools were primarily used against Iranian minorities, anti-regime organisations and resistance movements.


Check Point researchers have named this hacker group “Rampant Kitten”, and they’ve been active for around six years.


This Android backdoor is disguised as an app that helps Persian speakers in Sweden get their driver’s license.


In some cases, the hackers posed as the official Telegram account and hosted phishing pages on the platform.


Check Point suspects another similar case to occur where hackers try to get information on the same group of people.
