“The recent MiniDuke cyber attack could have been government backed and carried out by the intelligence services of a country. MiniDuke, which affected governments in several countries , including Romania’s, was most likely created by an entity which has the characteristics of a state, according to Romania’s Intelligence Service SRI. The cyber attack had an even greater impact than Red October, another cyber spy attack campaign discovered at the end of 2012, which had been targeting Eastern European and former Soviet countries for the last five years, targeting diplomatic representatives, administrations and scientific research institutes. The SRI did not offer information on the outcome of either of these two cyber attacks.”
