Afghan Government websites used by China to distribute Malware

On December 21, it was reported that malware apparently originating from China, penetrated several Afghani governmental  websites in order to infect the visitors of the websites. It is estimated that the attack was carried out around the 16th of December , the date on which the country’s prime minister visited China.  This attack, seems to be linked to the fact that China is seeking to play a more active role in the region since the end of US and NATO activity in the region.

Researchers said that they linked  these continuing operations to “Specific Chinese Actors” who are using the attacks on Afghan infrastructures to infiltrate them in order to take further offensive action against them.
