“Today the victims of sophisticated malwares in the ASEAN region are first and utmost diplomats. Compromise of diplomatic dispatches and other confidential data has become one of the prime goals of malware creators in Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia as well as in most countries of the region. The threat of strategic cyber espionage gives a common ground to the ASEAN states and Russia - as Russia also witnesses intensive use of advanced cyber espionage tools against its governmental and scientific institutions, defense and nuclear industry enterprises and aerospace contractors,” - Head of Government Relations and Strategic Projects at Kaspersky Lab Andrey Yarnykh.
“In the winter of 2013/14 the level of security in the world will lower. This will be the result of expected counter-attack of the opposition in Syria, and retaliations that Damascus and Tehran will throw on Sunni insurgents. Terrorist attacks will occur against the residencies of the Revolutionary Guards at the Iranian embassies in the Arab countries as it happened in Beirut. Iranian response will come in no time. Escalation of confrontation between Iran and Israel is also possible”, – President of the Institute of Middle East Studies, Evgeny Satanovsky.
