Regin Malware Infographic

Through their implementation, coding methods, plugins, hiding techniques and flexibility, Regin is one of the most sophisticated attack platforms Kasperksy has ever analysed.

For more than a decade, a sophisticated group known as Regin has targeted high-profile entities around the world with an advanced malware platform. Kasperkey notes, the operation is still active, although the malware may have been upgraded to more sophisticated versions. The most recent sample Kaspersky saw was from a 64-bit infection. This infection was still active in the spring of 2014 and first appeared in the spring of 2011, but may go back to 2003.
