Researchers from Check Point Software, an American-Israeli security firm, published a report Monday detailing a large-scale cyber espionage operation targeting the Middle East, Europe, and the United States.

The hacker group, Rocket Kitten, is allegedly linked to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps. The group targeted 1,600 individuals and organizations including Israeli scientists, Saudi Royal family members, NATO officials, Iranian dissidents, and other high-profile individuals.

After informing computer security teams who notified police in the U.K., Germany, and the Netherlands of the locations of servers used to launch attacks from Iran, a raid at those locations has apparently ensued, according to Reuters.
