Re: Team of 1000

The report indicated that the signatures of 1,000 coders were detected in the malicious code, which when I read it, I was intrigued to understand how that number can be determined. Given that it was reported that 4,000 odd lines of code in the compromised DLL and then whatever the code size is for the injected payload following the call to the command control.

This is part of the evidence of state sponsorship, which if indeed 1,000 coders were involved could only be the case, as that level of organisation simply would not happen in a private hacking group.
