Python, Golang and Rust Malware Deployed on Indian Targets 

Cybersecurity researchers have uncovered the actions of Transparent Tribe, a Pakistani-linked threat actor, who used malware written in Python, Golang, and Rust to attack the Indian government, defence, and aerospace sectors.  The attack done through a spear-phishing campaign also involves abuse of Discord, Google Drive, Slack and Telegram, which suggests threat actors now leverage legitimate programs in their attack vectors. A statement by one of BlackBerry’s researchers suggests, “This cluster of activity spanned from late 2023 to April 2024 and is anticipated to persist.” Some reports indicate that some organizations involved in the attack include Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), and BEML Limited.
