Pakistan targets Indian Officials with FinFisher malware

WikiLeaks last month released a set of documents and copies of 'weaponized malware' developed by FinFisher company which is said to be used by Governments around the world to spy on journalists, political dissidents and others.

Cyber Security & Privacy Foundation(CSPF) has recently published a report providing few details that might be shed an “Indian Perspective” to leaked information.

CSPF noted that a screenshot containing targets list of a Pakistani customer has 16 Indian IP addresses and only 2 Pakistani IP Addresses, suggesting that limited “domestic” use.

"One of the Exe’s leaked by Wikileaks 'finfisher.2.zip' MD5:074919f13d07cd6ce92bb0738971afc7 when opened shows the image of 'khushab nuclear reactor ' in Pakistan." The report reads.

"This might have been used to target Indian Officers as they might be tempted to click on it and view the image".
