China’s Cyber-Division Targets Tibettruth

After reporting on China’s cyber-attack against pro-Tibet organizations and with the launch of Anonymous’ ‘Operation Tibet’ scheduled for Tibetan Independence Day on February 13 we noticed couple hours back a curious email dropping into the inbox.

Seemingly sent from an account with a Tibetan sounding name it asked “Who is this?” and contained the poorly worded and bizarre message “R u now this is high lama”.

It also featured a shortened link which if clicked, presumably, was to satisfy the hoped for curiosity we were supposed to feel.

Like all uninvited incoming communications this was examined with care and given its content considered as being hostile action. It was deleted and a number of precautionary security checks run.

We remind the cyber division of China’s regime that your efforts to plant malware will continue to be met with rigorous scrutiny and defense.

Meanwhile, should Mr ‘Dawa Phuntsok’ be reading this, and prove to be a Tibetan who genuinely wishes to genuinely contact us he can do so via our Twitter account @tibettruth or on Facebook @digitalactivism

We won’t be holding our breath on that one!

As the days countdown to the launch (on February 13 Tibetan Independence Day) of a planned attack from Anonymous activists on Chinese government websites a report’s been issued by Cisco Talos which details a cyber-campaign that targets pro-Tibetan organizations.

Clearly an action by China’s digital division it exploits a mailing list run by the exiled Tibetan Administration, emailing a document, which on opening delivers a Remote Action Trojan (RAT), A malware designed to steal files, system and personal data, conduct surveilliance and terminating or starting processes.

Such covert strikes have been going on for some years now, we’re not affected by this latest enemy action, as we do not subscribe to the list in question. In addition we run security measures on a daily basis to maintain our online operations.
