Hackers target 35,000 CFOs in spear phishing campaign

The Financial Times has reported this morning that a hacker group has compiled a list of 35,000 chief financial officers, some working at the world’s biggest banks and mortgage companies, so it can target them with requests to transfer money.  The “London Blue” hackers are the latest group to focus on “business email compromise” campaigns, according to the cyber threat detection company Agari, which found a list of 50,000 targets. Most of the rest of the people on the list were in accounting departments.
