It is exceptionally rare for a well-documented threat actor, previously implicated in very high-profile attacks, to stay completely under the radar for several years. Yet, in the last three years that is what APT group the Dukes (aka APT29 and Cozy Bear) has done. Despite being well known as one of the groups to hack the Democratic National Committee in the run-up to the 2016 US election, the Dukes has received little subsequent attention. The last documented campaign attributed to them is a phishing campaign against the Norwegian government that dates back to January 2017
