An excellent publication from Forcepoint that covers CnC malware, malicious insiders and attribution. Unlike other threat reports, this report covers multiple human factors that are often neglected in technical reports. In some cases, human error and predisposition to reuse malware has lead thee researchers to determine a high probability of configuration reuse which leads to easier detection of threats. It also reminds other security researchers not to get tied into attribution based on bread-crumbs, since these could have easily been planted on purpose for the purpose of leading investigators astray.
