Poland’s Military Counterintelligence Service and Computer Emergency Response Team have connected recent attacks on NATO and EU countries to the Russia-linked APT29 group. This group, also known as SVR group, Cozy Bear, Nobelium, and The Dukes, has previously been involved in cyber espionage, including the Democratic National Committee hack during the 2016 US Presidential Elections. In March 2023, a new cyber espionage campaign was uncovered by BlackBerry researchers, which targeted diplomatic entities and systems transmitting sensitive information about the region’s politics, aiding Ukrainian citizens fleeing the country, and providing help to the government of Ukraine.
