FireEye has discovered 11 member of the group Syrian Malware Team, following investigations of the malware ‘BlackWorm’. The group is certainly pro-Syrian, pro-Bashar al Assad. However, it is still unclear whether the group is coordinating with the SEA, or whether it is just an off-shoot of the SEA. The BlackWorm malware used by the Syrian Malware Team was created by three hackers with the following monikers: njq8 (a Kuwaiti national), Black Mafia, and Black.Hacker.
