Postcards From The Rus

Reuters reporter Christopher Bing has reported a new ‘probe’ instantiated by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation targeting a Rus-linked postcard (of-all-things) sent to FireEye, Inc. Chief Executive Officer Kevin Mandia after the information and cyber security consulting company unearthed the now known to be widespread attack on SolarWinds systems management products in both the private and public sectors.

‘The postcard carries FireEye’s logo, is addressed to CEO Kevin Mandia, and calls into question the ability of the Milpitas, California-based firm to accurately attribute cyber operations to the Russian government. People familiar with Mandia’s postcard summarized its content to Reuters. It shows a cartoon with the text: “Hey look Russians” and “Putin did it!” ‘ – via Christopher Bing, reporting at Reuters
