Saudis under trojan attack

The Saudi Arabian financial and technology sectors are under attack by trojan-slinging cybercriminals.

The latest run of the OilRig campaign features malware used to target the defence industry in the kingdom last year, reports Palo Alto Networks. In the latest run of attacks crooks are posing as legitimate service providers offering technical troubleshooting or brandishing fake job offers in attempts to trick prospective marks into opening booby-trapped attachments.

In both cases the Helminth trojan is the main payload. ®
