‘Morpho’ group goes after corporate IP
Symantec has identified a group of cybercriminals, whom they’ve named “Morpho,” as targeting corporate intellectual property for financial gains, with Twitter, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft among those hit.
“Attackers going after intellectual property is not that usual,” said Vikram Thakur, senior manager at Symantec.
However, those attackers tend to be state-sponsored and target information or military or other strategic importance.
“That kind of intellectual property is of high value to nations across the board,” he said.
