Iranian Hackers Have Set Up a News Outlet to Court Possible Targets, Security Firm Says

CTech reports:
An Iranian cyber espionage group known as Charming Kitten is believed to be behind a campaign targeting academic researchers, human rights activists, media outlets and political advisors focusing on Iran, according to a report published earlier this week by Israel-based threat intelligence company ClearSky Cyber Security. The group has also set up a news outlet called The British News Agency to lure targets in.

ClearSky reports also point out a connection between Charming Kitten and Behzad Mesri, also known as Skote Vahshat, (sic) the Egyptian citizen indicted by the FBI for hacking into HBO and leaking episodes of several series, including Game of Thrones. According to the FBI, Mesri has been a member of an Iran-based hacking group called the Turk Black Hat security team at certain times.
