Iranian Cognitive and Information Warfare Section 1
Grey zone activities, cognitive warfare actions, information warfare, influence operations and primary APTs
Once they have gathered sufficient information about the victim's interests, Iranian hackers use this knowledge to craft personalized phishing emails or messages. By tailoring the content to match the target's specific interests or concerns, they increase the chances of the victim falling for the trap. The phishing email may contain enticing content, such as an intriguing offer, urgent request, or relevant topic, designed to evoke the victim's curiosity or desire to take action. The email may include an attachment that, when opened, executes malware on the victim's device or redirects them to a malicious website. We start with funding and grey zone activities before moving to cognitive and information warfare actions and known APTs.
