Charming Kitten Returns with WhatsApp, LinkedIn Effort

  • The Iran-affiliated APT known as Charming Kitten is back with a new approach, impersonating Persian-speaking journalists via WhatsApp and LinkedIn, in order to con victims into opening malicious links.
  • The attackers attempt to get a conversation going in order to establish trust. For instance, in the case of the Jewish Journal webinar, the attackers tried to entice the victim with nominating them as its main speaker, “chosen from more than a hundred participants.”
