Callisto group hackers targeted three US nuclear research labs, according to Reuters

A report by Reuters indicates that Russian hackers affiliated with the Callisto (Cold River) group targeted three US nuclear research laboratories during the summer of 2022.

The hacking team targeted the Brookhaven, Argonne, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, created fake login pages for each lab, and then emailed scientists with the intent of stealing their passwords.

Reuters did not determine why the three labs were targeted or if the attempted intrusions were successful. Neither of the three labs responded to requests for comments.
