The cybersecurity researcher Maddie Stone: An APT used at least 11 zero-days exploits in less than a year to conduct mass spying across a range of platforms and devices

An APT used at least 11 zero-days exploits in less than a year to conduct mass spying across a range of platforms and devices. It has been denounced by the Google Project Zero cybersecurity researcher, Maddie Stone. The group has actively used “watering hole” attacks to redirect specific targets to a pair of exploit servers delivering malware on Windows, iOS and Android devices. According to SecurityWeek, The cross-platform capabilities and the willingness to use almost dozen zero-days in less than a year signals a well-resourced actor with the ability to access hacking tools and exploits from related teams. The cybercrime actor, from a February 2020 campaign went dark for a few months but returned in October with dozens of websites redirecting to an exploit server.
