Belugasturgeon is a sophisticated threat actor that has been identified as Turla by Accenture Cyber Threat Intelligence. This group specializes in targeting government organizations using custom malware, including updated legacy tools. They are known for their ability to maintain persistence through overlapping backdoor access while evading their victim's defenses. Belugasturgeon appears to be highly skilled and resourceful, continually adapting their tactics to stay ahead of defenders. Their use of custom malware suggests that they are capable of developing advanced capabilities tailored to specific targets. Additionally, their focus on government organizations indicates that they may have political motivations or state-sponsored backing. Despite efforts to defend against Belugasturgeon's attacks, they continue to be successful at infiltrating and remaining undetected within victim networks. The use of overlapping backdoor access allows them to maintain control even if one avenue of access is discovered and blocked.
