APT34

The Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) group “APT34” is believed to be an Iranian-based group that has been active since at least 2014. APT34 conducts cyber espionage operations focused on reconnaissance that benefits Iranian nation-state interests. The group works on behalf of the Iranian government. APT34 use a mix of public and non-public tools. There is a possibility that APT34 may be related to the Iranian “Chafer” threat group outlined by Symantec in 2015 due to a shared server.
