hij (552932) writes "The BBC is reporting that Syrian government forces used a social hack to gain access to opposing forces computers. By acting like women sympathetic to their cause they were able to send images laced with malware to the fighters. From the article: "Fake 'femme fatales' have been used to steal battle plans and other data from Syrian opposition groups, a report suggests. The virtual women had been used in text chat on Skype to engage potential victims, security company FireEye said. And data had been stolen via booby-trapped images of the women to whom the victims had believed they had been chatting."
