I know I'm not supposed to admire hacker groups, but... This level of sophistication is just... Amazing.

What does "Fetish" mean in the context that it's used in this article? I tried Googling "Tunnel Fetish" but all I get are reposts of or references to this article.

level 2

Fetish usually means a specific sexual preference, like redhats or asian women. In the contezt of the article, its a joke meaning the group really like tunneling.

level 2

Fetish is a thing you have an attraction to.

Tunnel is a virtual network connection.

level 2

Read "fetish" as 'strong attraction'. It is a commonly used term in social science academic works.

18 months?? Dedication lol

Currently on a 12 step program to shake my own tunnel fetish.

What was so exceptional about it? Other than manually picking end points to infect and handpicking stealthy domain names it doesn’t seem to do anything mindblowing?

one of the best servers, almost zero lag and no griefers

When I read that this was detected by Mandiant it is no longer impressive. This is what Mandiant do and it plays right into their services. There could have been artifacts from prior breach attempts etc etc that show up as a single Advanced persistent threat to the investigation by Mandiant. There were a very small number of endpoints infected which again do not make sense for an APT running for 18 months, in my opinion this is a good forensics write up about something that almost was ….. nothing to see here carry on

Let's keep in mind that camDown is the maximum in security for you and your loved ones and I am sure your father would feel the same.
