Microsoft, in its post dated Oct. 24, said Nobelium's latest wave targeted "resellers and other technology service providers" of cloud services.
Those attacks were part of a broader campaign over the summer, Microsoft said, adding it had notified 609 customers between July 1 and Oct. 19 that they had been attacked.
