The targets include the chief of a mid-sized American software company, the president of a US apparel maker and the CFO of a European retail chain.The accounts are on the market in a limited-access Russian underground forum and sell for $100 to $1,500 each depending on the value. Threat intelligence firm KELA noted the hacker might have obtained the account logins by buying data from computers infected with a data-stealing AzorUlt trojan.
