Hi All,

Good day.

Kaspersky Lab Identifies Operation “Red October,” an Advanced Cyber-Espionage Campaign Targeting Diplomatic and Government Institutions Worldwide
 which was running for past 5 years and stealing vital informations from the systems.

Since we are operating Globally can we find the same kinds of risks by SEP 12.1 ?

Best Regards

"Thumbs up" to the above.

This is a development that Symantec is aware of and will continue to monitor.

With thanks and best regards,
