The seller was identified as a member of Pioneer Kitten, also commonly referred to as Fox Kitten or Parasite. The group is well known for utilizing several different vulnerabilities to exploit VPNs and standard corporate networking devices. The sale of a number of corporate networks began in July of this year and the user behind the sale has since been linked to Pioneer Kitten. It is currently believed that the sale of these accounts is simply a means of expanding the group’s financial gain from their activities. The systems being sold are targets which would typically be out of the scope of the Iranian regime’s scope of interest.
