Many attackers?
however, Canzanese says it's also possible the source code has been reused by multiple attackers in the same time frame. My guess is that many attackers behind this as it is smart and effective. Just a guess.

Since 2014
While this particular series of attacks was found in April 2019, researchers say similar malware has been around since early 2014. Yes. There is not much you can do if phishing attack but relying on awareness.

Credentials
Interestingly, it seems the attackers are rotating their database credentials every few weeks, Canzanese says. This may be because they want their trace not out there. Easy to rotate credentials.

Google
Further, Canzanese adds, targets may be more likely to click a Google link than a malicious attachment, which many employees are now trained to avoid. This makes really good sense. Most trust google so just click the link.
