The targeted attack campaign Esile was found in the second half of 2013 trying to spread backdoor malware inside the networks of East Asian governments, electronic manufacturers, and telecommunications firms.
The PLEAD campaign is the second attack to target entities in Taiwan in the first half of 2014. Taiwanese agencies were also targeted in May using a Microsoft Word zero-day vulnerability.
Attackers are finding more and more ways to exploit weaknesses, and now, we see the BLYPT backdoor family using blobs in its routines. Who are the targets of this new targeted attack campaign and how can it get in?
