Turla or Uroboros is a Trojan package that is suspected by computer security researchers and Western intelligence officers to be the product of a Russian government agency of the same name.[1][2][3]


Turla has been targeting governments and militaries since at least 2008.[2][4][5]

In December 2014 there was evidence of it targeting the Linux operating system.[6]


The advanced persistent threat hacking group has also been named Turla.[1] Dan Goodin in Ars Technica described Turla as "Russian spies".[7]
