THREAT ACTOR: Predatory Sparrow

Some say their name is a play on “Charming Kitten”, the name of the notorious Iranian APT (advanced persistent threat) group. Although Predatory Sparrow has their own social media accounts, these are not searchable under their English nom but under its Persian equivalent, Gonjeshke Darande.

At this point (July 2022) no one knows whether Predator Sparrow is a state-sponsored group. Are they just mere hacktivists out to punish corporations they see are crossing the line?
