Fancy Bear is a Russia-based adversary that carries out targeted intrusion operations primarily against North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) member states and Eastern European countries with aspirations of NATO membership to support intelligence collection and reporting. The adversary’s campaigns have been previously supported using a range of malware families that are unique to the adversary, including Sofacy, WinIDS, X-Agent, and DownRage. This adversary also has sought to directly compromise the email accounts of target organizations using password spraying techniques, thereby reducing requirements to deploy malware in order to collect user data.
