Pak group targets Indian govt officials using 7th Pay Commission: FireEye

The emails were allegedly sent to government officials from, a fake news domain registered by the attackers.

Days after Kaspersky claimed Indian government sites were compromised by a cyberespionage group, cybersecurity firm FireEye, Inc has claimed that a fake news website was used to sent spear phishing emails to Indian government officials as part of cyber attacks by a suspected Pakistan-based group.
“On May 18, 2016 the group registered a fake news website and sent spear phishing emails to Indian government officials. The emails referenced the Indian Government’s 7th Central Pay Commission, a topic of interest among officials,”a blog posted by the company claimed.
“There’s no silver bullet to fend off advanced cyber attacks. It’s critical for Indian organisations to bring together the technology, expertise and threat intelligence necessary to quickly detect and respond to these attacks,” said Bryce Boland, Chief Technology Officer for Asia Pacific at FireEye.
