China-based APT Debuts Sepulcher Malware in Spear-Phishing Attacks

  • A China-based APT has been sending organizations spear-phishing emails that distribute a never-before-seen intelligence-collecting RAT dubbed Sepulcher.
  • Researchers discovered the new malware being distributed over the past six months through two separate campaigns.
  • The first, in March, targeted European diplomatic and legislative bodies, non-profit policy research organizations and global organizations dealing with economic affairs.
  • The second, in July, targeted Tibetan dissidents. They tied the campaigns to APT group TA413, which researchers say has been associated with Chinese state interests and is known for targeting the Tibetan community.
