Microsoft says Israeli company is behind malware that affected Windows PCs

Microsoft said it believes an Israeli company was behind malware that was used to attack PCs running its Windows operating system.

The move represents a new step Microsoft is taking to reduce online security incidents. The company has also sought to identify government-backed hackers, such as the Chinese group it calls Hafnium, which it claims was behind attacks on its Exchange Server email software.

Microsoft calls the organization that sold the software Sourgum, although the University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab has said the company is Candiru, Cristin Goodwin, general manager of Microsoft’s Digital Security Unit, wrote in a blog post.
