Russia's Sandworm Hack Has Been Spying on Foreign Governments for Years

(Wired): http://www.wired.com/2014/10/russian-sandworm-hack-isight/

   "A cyberespionage campaign believed to be based in Russia has been
    targeting government leaders and institutions for nearly five years,
    according to researchers with iSight Partners who have examined code
    used in the attacks.  The campaign, dubbed "Sandworm" is believed to
    have been running since 2009, and used a wide-reaching zero-day
    exploit uncovered by the researchers that affects nearly every version
    of the Windows operating system released since Windows Vista."
