Kaspersky Labs Discloses More Info on the Super-Spy Malware Regin | Re/code

"The intended victims appear to be certain customers of the targeted ISPs and telecom companies. But Kaspersky notes a few classes of victims that Symantec did not: Government agencies, financial institutions and individuals doing advanced research into mathematics and cryptology. [...] Easily the most interesting and ominous disclosure from Kaspersky is the fact that the Regin malware was used to compromise GSM wireless phone base stations. Rather than hitting individual cell sites — or “base stations,” as they’re known — Regin was used to attack what are called Base Station Controllers, systems that manage several individual cell sites at a time."
