Nigerian Threat Actors have long been considered a nuisance rather than a threat. Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 returns to the topic that launched our research in 2014 with our latest report, "SILVERTERRIER: The Next Evolution in Nigerian Cybercrime." This report shows that Nigerian threat actors are capable and formidable adversaries successfully attacking major companies and governments by using cheap, off-the-shelf commodity malware.

The history of Nigerian threat actors and their use of unsophisticated technology makes it easy to underestimate the threat. This report shows why it’s not just wrong but dangerous to take Nigerian threat actors lightly.
