Cosmic Lynx cyber crime group takes BEC to new heights

  • A newly identified Russian cyber criminal group, called Cosmic Lynx by the threat researchers who have been tracking it, is developing increasingly complex and creative business email compromise (BEC) attacks that target Fortune 500 enterprises.
  • At some point, Russian cyber criminals were going to ask themselves why they were spending so much time and money on infrastructure and malware development when they can just send someone an email, ask for money, and get it. This now appears to be happening.
