Submission + - Bit9 Breach Dates to July 2012, Tied to Attacks on U.S. Defense Firms->

tsu doh nimh writes: Last week, Bit9 — a security firm that offers application whitelisting services — disclosed that some of its customers had received malware signed with its secret digital certificates. The company has refused to say much about which customers were targeted, but a story by Brian Krebs today shows that the Bit9 certificate was stolen back in July 2012, and that the attack involved custom malware that was discovered by forensics firm Mandiant last August as the company was responding to several targeted breaches at U.S. defense contractors. The Bit9 breach is sure to add fuel to the fire over whether China's military is sponsoring these attacks, as claimed in a 70+page report issued by Mandiant earlier this week.
