Attempt to Compromise a Foreign Government Entity

In this attempted attack, rather than emailing the malware directly to their target, the actors leveraged a job search and employment service within Ukraine. In doing so, the actors searched for an active job posting, uploaded their downloader as a resume and submitted it through the job search platform to a Western government entity. Given the steps and precision delivery involved in this campaign, it appears this may have been a specific, deliberate attempt by Gamaredon to compromise this entity.
