The report was released Tuesday by security firm Mandiant http://www.networkworld.com/news/2013/021913-mandiant-266830.html and documents in great detail the cyberespionage campaigns conducted since 2006 by a hacker group known as the Comment Crew against more than 100 companies and organizations from different industries. Two different spear-phishing attacks were discovered on Thursday using emails with malicious attachments that masqueraded as the Mandiant report, according to security firm Seculert.
