“Various cyber actors have engaged in malicious activity against U.S. Government and private sector entities. The apparent objective of this activity has been the theft of intellectual property, trade secrets, and other sensitive business information. The malicious actors have employed a variety of techniques to infiltrate targeted organizations, establish a foothold, penetrate throughout the targets’ networks, and steal confidential or proprietary data. The United States Department of Homeland Security, in collaboration with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other partners, has released a Joint Indicator Bulletin (JIB) through secure channels. This JIB contains cyber threat indicators that will enable public and private sector critical infrastructure partners to take action to mitigate adverse impacts from this activity and protect their sensitive information.”
