Chinese hackers: Social Engineering and CNN

Published by at 8:46 am under Chinese Malware,Hacking for money,Other attacks

Top of the news lately has been the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict and this hasn’t been lost on Chinese hackers.  RSA is reporting that the fake CNN website is luring people with graphic images of the conflict.  RSA claims that they have shutdown the attack and that the website was hosted in China.

Yes, I know hosted in China does not mean Chinese hackers…fine.

RSA mentions that the “gang” is known but checking the links did not indicate if they were Chinese or from another source. Left them a comment on the site requesting more info…so, I leave you with this until informed otherwise.
