FireEye and their Red Team tools
The cybersecurity giant, FireEye, was recently hit with a cyber attack in which there was unauthorized access to their suite of tools used to evaluate the security posture of enterprise systems. In other words, this highly sophisticated threat actor took tools from this company who could then use them maliciously. Luckly, FireEye has released two blog posts with more information and a GitHub repository for detection countermeasures. This was certainly an expensive incident for them though, as well as embarrassing, time consuming, and stressful.
