Symantec has released a report on a malware under the name of “Regin”. This malware has been online since 2008, and has gone undetected since then. According to Re/Code who interviewed Symantec, the origin of the malware has remained unclear.
The sophistication and effort put into Regin, however, makes it clear that it was made by no basement-dwelling neckbeard from 4Chan. This is the doing of a government organization, made for espionage purposes.
It was recently confirmed that Regin Malware is linked to being used as a spy tool for GCHQ and NSA Operations. So, linked to the British and US Spy Agencies.
