Cyberattack group Pawn Storm have added Turkish political targets to an ever-increasing list of people to spy upon for the benefit of Russia.
On Monday, Trend Micro researchers said in a blog post that Pawn Storm, well-known for spying upon political targets across the world, is now targeting several government offices — including the Prime Minister’s office and the Turkish parliament — as well as one of the largest media publications in the country.
Pawn Storm’s cyberattacks, aimed at compromising networks and systems for the sake of cyberespionage, often correlate to Russian politics. The group, believed to be state-sponsored, has attacked a diverse range of targets in the past including the military, diplomats, journalists, developers and political dissidents.
