Fake Judicial Spam Leads to Backdoor with Fake Certificate Authority

Here is the link to a new blog post I wrote with friends Kenney Lu and Dark Luo from Trend Micro.

It has several interesting aspects, in my mind:

  • The fact that there is an ongoing campaign against french people, using french material, which is rare enough to be worth mentioning;
  • The fact that there is a kit used to drop different payloads: Gootkit, CryptoWall, some banking trojan...;
  • The fact that it uses an innovating method to infect the victims computers.

Hope you will enjoy the read ! :-)
