Today we released a Joint Cybersecurity Advisory with our international partners on the Snake implant. The Snake implant is a sophisticated cyber espionage tool designed and used by Center 16 of Russia’s Federal Security Service for long-term intelligence collection on sensitive targets.
We have identified Snake infrastructure in over 50 countries, its targeting is purposeful and tactical in nature designed to collect intelligence from high-priority targets, such as government networks, research facilities, and journalists.
This Cybersecurity Advisory provides background on Snake’s attribution and contains detailed descriptions of the implant’s host architecture and network communications. The technical information and mitigation recommendations provided are designed to assist network defenders in detecting Snake and associated activity.
