+ - Hackers attack European governments using 'MiniDuke' malware->

Submitted by puddingebola
puddingebola (2036796) writes "From the article, "The cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab, which discovered MiniDuke, said the attackers had servers based in Panama and Turkey – but an examination of the code revealed no further clues about its origin.

Goverments targeted include those of Ireland, Romania, Portugal, Belgium and the Czech Republic. The malware also compromised the computers of a prominent research foundation in Hungary, two thinktanks, and an unnamed healthcare provider in the US."

Computers were corrupted through an Adobe PDF attachment to an email. The origin of the malware is unknown."
