Re: Smart> and sophisticated social engineering
One of the more interesting things I read about Fin4 was in the New York times report which quoted Jen Weedon, a FireEye threat intelligence manager, who said the targets were people in senior roles with "enough juicy information in their inbox." What they were after were propetary info "protected by attorney-client privilege, safety reports, internal documents about investigations and audits."  The social engineering was quite sophisticated.
