Submission + - Report: 7 Years of Advanced Persistent Threat (

psychosis writes: Mandiant's "M-Trends" report highlights more than seven years of lessons learned while conducting computer and network intrusion investigations for the U.S. government, the defense industrial base, and commercial organizations. Recently, a number of device vendors and "security" shops have been attempting to surf the "APT PR wave," but Mandiant has been actively engaged in responding to the APT for longer than most in the industry have even acknowledged such a pervasive threat exists.
This report offers a comprehensive, FIRST HAND account, and includes several case studies.
Bottom line: if you run a computer network that is now or may someday be of interest to foreign governments or criminal organizations you should request and read this report.
