Submission + - China Hackers Chuck Zero-Day Malware At Spiritual Activists And Military Groups

twoheadedboy writes: A Chinese hacker group is the chief suspect of spear phishing attacks against the Falun Dafa spiritual group and military organisations in the Philippines. Data handed to TechWeek by AlienVault Labs showed how zero-day malware, designed to pilfer Outlook email account logins, was just one strand of the attacks, which are ongoing. Other malware sought to steal passwords for other accounts, dodging many commercial AV products, whilst remote access tools indicate this is a serious surveillance operation. Chinese authorities have neither confirmed nor denied the claims. But it marks another case of Internet-led surveillance with China's name attached to it, following numerous reports of mass Chinese hacking, which has already allegedly hit massive firms like Facebook and Google.
