The Central Tibetan Administration website has been hacked to serve up a Java exploit that drops advanced malware, marking the latest attempt to compromise people hoping for freedom from Chinese control in the province.
The site is one of the Dalai Lama’s official sites. Those who visited xizang-zhiye(dot)org were redirected, via an embedded iframe, to an exploit that leads to the download of the Swisyn Trojan, Kaspersky said.
“At this point in time, it seems that the few systems attacked with this code are located in China and the US, although there could be more,” said Kurt Baumgartner, Kaspersky Lab expert, said in a blog post.
