Regin malware linked to attacks on Belgacom, well-known cryptographer
After Symantec blew the lid on Regin on Sunday, computer security experts and companies are revealing information that has lead to suspicions that the U.S. and U.K. are involved.
Regin has been known about for years by security companies, but Symantec’s white paper on the malware prompted several in the last day to come forward with what they know.
It’s unclear why security companies maintained a collective silence about Regin for so long. Symantec said it first discovered Regin about a year ago and that it took the company that long to analyze it.
