Fancy Bears targets International Luge Federation ahead of Winter Olympics

A couple of weeks after they were caught spoofing domains of WADA, USADA and OCASIA to target visitors, prominent hacker group Fancy Bears stole sensitive documents from the International Luge Federation (ILF) just weeks ahead of the Winter Olympics.

According to several researchers, Fancy Bears started targeting WADA and other organisations associated with the Olympics after a large number of Russian athletes were banned for doping offences.

Unlike many hacker groups that do their best to stay hidden from security researchers and law enforcement agencies, Fancy Bears have made it a point to announce every successful hacking operation they conduct. The group's latest victim is the International Luge Federation (ILF) which will have a major role to play in the upcoming Winter Olympics.
