According to a report on Foxnews today, TrendMicro has traced a MalWare attack aimed at Tibetan activists in Japan and India to a Chinese graduate of Sichuan University. The LuckyCat campaign has been active for about a year and compromised over 230 computers in 90 separate attacks.  You can read the TrendMicro report here.    According to TrendMicro: “The Luckycat campaigns targets include the aerospace, military, energy, shipping and engineering industries, as well as Tibetan activists and organizations. Given its technical similarities, Luckycat is believe to be a continuation of ShadowNet, also known as GhostNet, a Chinese cybercrime campaign that has been targeting Tibetan activists as well as the Indian government since 2009, Trend Micro said.”
