Trojan.Taidoor Takes Aim at Policy Think Tanks


Executive Summary

Trojan.Taidoor has been consistently used in targeted attacks during the last three years. Since May 2011, there has been a substantial increase in its activity. Taidoor’s current targets are primarily private industry and influential international think tanks with a direct involvement in US and Taiwanese affairs. Facilities in the services sector that these organizations may use have also been targeted. There are a number of additional ancillary targets.

Trojan.Taidoor dates back to March 2008 and in-field telemetry has identified Taidoor being used in targeted attack emails since May 2009. Fourteen distinct versions and three separate families of the Trojan have been identified to date. The threat continues to evolve to suit the attackers’ requirements.
