Malware for Tibet supporters?

Published by at 12:12 pm under Censorship,Chinese Malware,Tibet

I saw this blog (Politically Motivated Computer Crime and Hacktivism) about Tibet supporters recieving email malware in my feed reader today and thought it might be interesting to TDV readers.  The original article is here.

“We are getting virus attacks that are just shameless… claiming to be desperate people inside Tibet. The emails are well-written and emotional, pleading for us to open the images,” she told AFP.

“At the moment we are having to use outside emails because our email accounts are not working, we have to direct everything through our outside emails,” he told AFP.

Hopefully more to follow (looking for malware samples)…
