+ - Syrian regime uses Skype to fire Trojan at opposition activists->

Submitted by concertina226
concertina226 (2447056) writes "Further evidence has emerged that the Syrian Government is targeting opposition activists using a well-known remote access Trojan distributed through bogus Skype calls.

A blog this week by Mikko Hypponen of antivirus company F-Secure describes receiving the hard drive image of a Syrian dissident’s PC which turned out to have been infected with the widely-available ‘Xtreme RAT’, a backdoor tool for remotely controlling and accessing PCs."
