Check Point Research (CPR) and Kaspersky’s Global Research & Analysis Team (GReAT) have been tracking an ongoing attack targeting a small minority group of Uyghur individuals in Xinjiang, China and Pakistan. Attackers use fake United Nations (UN) documents and human rights websites to spread malware that has the ability to exfiltrate information and take control of victims’ PCs. Malicious actors disguised their attacks in the following ways: They created documents that appear to be from the UN, using real UN information to ensure these looked authentic. Set up websites for non-existent organizations claiming to fund charity groups.
