The organization called the Equation Group uses Stuxnet variants, Zero days and a variety of Trojans and other exploits to gain control of both Windows and Mac computers. It’s estimated running for over two decades. The computer worm Stuxnet was part of a project codenamed Olympic Games run by Israel and the U.S. and was responsible for infecting about 1,000 centrifuges in Iran’s nuclear enrichment program. The U.S. National Security Agency has figured out how to hide spying software deep within hard drives made by Western Digital, Seagate, Toshiba and other top manufacturers. As Costin Raiu, director of the Global Research and Analysis Team at Kaspersky Lab, said – “It means that we are practically blind and cannot detect hard drives that have been infected with this malware.” A former NSA employee told to media that Kaspersky’s analysis was correct. The NSA declined to comment on any allegations in the Kaspersky report.
