Mandiant continues to track activity from Nobelium, specifically associated with cluster groups UNC3004 and UNC2652. Activities conducted by the group have involved data exploits relevant to Russian interests. Targets observed by Mandiant included, compromising technology solution companies, services and resellers. The groups use credentials likely from info-stealer malware or compromised entities and a new downloader dubbed "CEELOADER."
