February 18, 2020Ravie Lakshmanan
A new report published by cybersecurity researchers has unveiled evidence of Iranian state-sponsored hackers targeting dozens of companies and organizations in Israel and around the world over the past three years. Dubbed " Fox Kitten ," the cyber-espionage campaign is said to have been directed at companies from the IT, telecommunication, oil and gas, aviation, government, and security sectors. "We estimate the campaign revealed in this report to be among Iran's most continuous and comprehensive campaigns revealed until now," ClearSky researchers said . "The revealed campaign was used as a reconnaissance infrastructure; however, it can also be used as a platform for spreading and activating destructive malware such as ZeroCleare and Dustman."

For all of the undeniable conveniences the Internet has brought us, it's becoming an increasingly dangerous place to be. Both individual hackers and entire government agencies are now able to hack into your computer or smartphone from across the globe and steal everything from your browsing history to your credit card numbers, and they're often able to do so without your knowledge. A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is the first and most important line of defense against these nefarious cyber attacks, and you should never surf the Web without one—regardless of whether you're using a public or private connection. VPN Unlimited is an award-winning service that provides unparalleled and unlimited browsing security across up to 5 devices simultaneously (iOS, Android, Linux, Mac OS X and Windows), and right now a lifetime subscription is available for 88% off at just $59.99 .
