    A Cyber Mercenary Investigation

    A Cyber Mercenary Investigation

    What is a cyber mercenary group and who are they attacking through cyberspace? In this episode, Feike Hacquebord, Sr. Threat Researcher at Trend Micro, reveals extensive details of a cyber mercenary group he has been tracking for more than a year, which he calls Void Balaur.
    "They target a lot of doctors… they are sending phishing emails to target senior engineers working for phone companies, they are targeting banks, as well. And all of these targets have one thing in common: they have a lot of personal data on people," Hacquebord says. The group is also going after activists, political leaders, and journalists.
