Meet Lyceum: Iranian hackers targeting telecoms, ISPs

Researchers have provided a deep dive into the activities of Lyceum, an Iranian threat group focused on infiltrating the networks of telecoms companies and internet service providers (ISPs).

Lyceum, also known as Hexane, Siamesekitten, or Spirlin, has been active since 2017. The advanced persistent threat (APT) group has been linked to campaigns striking Middle Eastern oil and gas companies in the past and now appears to have expanded its focus to include the technology sector.
