RedCurl hacking group returns with new attacks



Even after its operations were publicly exposed in August 2020, the RedCurl hacking group has continued to carry out new intrusions and has breached at least four companies this year, according to a new report from security firm Group-IB.

Targets hacked this year included two companies based in Russia, along with two others that Group-IB researchers said they couldn’t identify.
