Submission + - Leaked "RSA dump" appears authentic (risky.biz)

An anonymous reader writes: A massive Pastebin dump of domain names and IP addresses supposedly linked to a cyber espionage ring appears to be the real deal.

The dump also makes the explosive claim that many of the IP addresses are monitored by private information security companies "...for the purpose of supplying stolen information back to the affected companies."

The idea might sound like an unlikely conspiracy theory, but it's lent some serious credibility by a leaked HBGary analysis of some of the same IP addresses and domain names. That analysis appears to confirm their authenticity as espionage-linked callback IPs.

HBGary codenamed the operation "Soysauce".

"The soysauce group targets a large number of defense contractors who service the U.S.A," the analysis begins.

Each of the 850 entries in the dump potentially corresponds to a custom callback address for each successfully compromised victim.
