More about the Operation Poison News coming from Trend Micro’s intelligence blog

One of the news items from this week deals with operation poison news. This article was posted on the intelligence blog. This is much bigger than the IOS aspect that I had read in the weekly news article found on this blog post.

As discussed, this is done through Hong Kong’s popular forums that people go to talk about various topics. According to the analysis from Trend Micro, this may have started as early as November 2019 since that is when IOS certificates were issued. This may not necessarily be just an IOS problem though, says the article. There may be an android app out there as well, or rather, Android may be targeted by just going to these forums that have these posts.

To make things worse, Trend Micro indicates that these are new accounts, and the posts are not targeting any one individual or group.

To read more about what they’ve found including topics that the posts may cover to get people to click, do click on this article entitled: Operation Poisoned News: Hong Kong Users Targeted With Mobile Malware via Local News Links to read all the details. Very facinating stuff here, I must say.
