Asheer Maholtra and his colleagues have recently been tracking Operation: Armor Piercer, a new campaign targeted at military contractors and government agencies on the Indian subcontinent.

Asheer joins Talos Takes this week to discuss this campaign and provide some advice to MFA users to make sure they're accessing the right apps, notifications and messages. He also discusses the similarities Armor Piercer has to other threat actors in the region like SideCopy and Transparent Tribe.
