Hackers steal rebel plans

3 Feb, 2015

Over a two-month period, hackers posing as beautiful women steal the Syrian opposition’s strategy, tactical battle plans, supply needs, and large amounts of personal information and online chats. The fake website includes a matchmaking section that infects the victim’s computer when they click on links to women’s profiles. It is unclear who the hackers are working for, but the victims include rebels from the Free Syrian Army, Islamist fighting groups, media activists and humanitarian aid workers.
