Symantec has analyzed the use of exploit kit Elderwood that focuses on using exploits for zero-day vulnerabilities of Internet Explorer and Flash Player to perform spear phishing and watering hole attacks. Symantec believes that there is one single provider of zero-day exploits for IE and Flash Player behind hacking groups Hidden Lynx, Vidgrab, Linfo/Icefog and Sakurel. By the means of analysis of implementation of zero-day exploits in Elderwood Symantec has discovered that these groups are either organized by one central entity or share the source of the zero-day vulnerabilities. The claim is further strengthened by the fact that mose of these groups have some links to China.
