Mandiant Threat Intelligence has identified a broad influence campaign that is closely aligned with Russian security interests. These operations have primarily targeted audiences in Lithuania, Latvia, and Poland with narratives critical of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) presence in Eastern Europe while also leveraging anti-U.S. and COVID-19 themes. Mandiant Threat Intelligence has dubbed this campaign “Ghostwriter” based on its use of compromises news sites and fake personas to disseminate fabricated content.
