Re: Russian Intelligence agency codenamed Sandworm

@Walter Bishop - "c. How did your sources come by the codename of this hacking group?"

I assume the investigators gave the group the codename, it's a lot easier than referring to them as, "the group we detected at... and...". Surely the GRU would use a Russian codename, google tells me that песчаный червь is Russian for sandworm.
