New Silence hacking group suspected of having ties to cyber-security industry

Newly uncovered  Russian-speaking “Silence” cybercrime hacking group is linked to the theft of at least $800,000 from Russian and Eastern European banks and financial institutions. The group went undetected for years, mainly because of its predisposition for using legitimate apps and tools already found on victims’ computers, in a tactic known as “living off the land.” At least one member of a group appears to be a former or current employee of a cyber-security company.
