Chinese Hackers Must Get Tired During the Holidays

Published by at 4:13 pm under Chinese Malware,Hacking for money

  Got to give Ed Dickson at Blogger News Network credit for working Storm Worm, zombies and scantily clad women in Santa attire into the same headline.  Of course the offending URL for this potential horror movie has a .cn trailer attached to it.  Now, in case you somehow missed out on getting your computer infected on Xmas, I’m sure our Chinese hacker friends will give you another shot at it come New Year’s.

    Very interesting blog! After browsing through it a bit, I’m a bit surprised at the Chinese dependence on trojans and social-engineering. I thought they’d be more into it than simply using kiddie methods.

    Eastwood,

    While trojans and social-engineering are a big part of the culture for Chinese hackers, I’m afraid they have outgrown my ability to truly report on what they are doing.

    My background is strictly as a linguist and I can only report on what I can translate. Many of the programs they talk about are beyond my abilities to get any type of accurate xlation.

    Jumper has been kind enough to try to bring his technical expertise here but I’m afraid I haven’t been able to supply him with much.

    Please stop by again!
