Google warns of “Iranian and Russian hackers” stepping up their activities

Google has warned that hackers, allegedly linked to the governments of Iran and Russia, have recently intensified their activities.

In an article published yesterday, Friday, on its Internet blog, Google touched on the activities of the Iranian hacker group known as APT35 or “Beautiful Cat”, noting that this group has been working for years to hack accounts, spread malware and exploit modern spy technologies in accordance with the interests of the Tehran government.

Google held this group responsible for hacking a website linked to a British university in early 2021 in order to exploit it to engage in fraudulent “phishing” activities through the services of major email companies such as Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo.

Google indicated that Iranian hackers have been relying on this method since 2017 in order to target accounts belonging to governments, academia, journalists and non-governmental organizations.
