- Phishing scams usually try to get you to their malicious payload as quickly as possible, so when security researchers discovered a new type of campaign featuring multiple steps and downloads, they knew they had to dive deeper.
- As it turns out, this new campaign is just as dangerous as classic phishing schemes — and might even have an easier time making it to your inbox.
- With phishing campaigns, you’re only as vulnerable as you are naive. If you’re wise to the tricks and skeptical about anything coming into your inbox, you won’t fall victim to one of these scams.

- 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.
