'ScanBox' keylogger targets Uyghurs, US think tank, hospitality industry

2014/10/28

IDG News Service - (International) Researchers at PricewaterhouseCoopers found that the ScanBox keylogging framework may be being used by several attacker groups after it was found being used to perform keylogging attacks on a variety of Web sites, including a U.S. think tank and other sites. ScanBox was first discovered in August and uses JavaScript rather than installing malware to collect keystrokes and other information.
