In early 2019, Deflect staff lead an investigation that discovered a widespread and prolonged cyber offensive campaign against diaspora media and human rights activists from Uzbekistan. Deflect clients including Fergana News, Eltuz and Centre1 were the targets of this multi-year operation. Our reporting also uncovered a coordinated email phishing campaign against prominent journalists and leaders of Uzbek NGOs. This research has recently resurfaced in a Kaspersky investigation and was covered by Reuters. Find out more in Deflect Labs Report 6.
