To connect the dots between an identified attack and the state actor(s) behind it, companies like Bitdefender look for solid evidence inside the APT code or in the used communication infrastructure. The following report is a technical investigation of some particularities in the APT28 payload implementation that allowed us to link the threat to its operators.
