A team of researchers at Pangu Lab in China released a 50-page report outlining a fragmented Linux computer program allegedly used in a series of attacks targeted by a terrorist character known as Equation Group, on Wednesday. This group is linked to the US National Security Agency (NSA).
It is not uncommon for cybersecurity companies in the United States to publish detailed reports of tools and activities of terrorist actors linked to the Chinese government. Recently a group of Chinese researchers has released a report detailing a fragmented computer program tied to the US government. The backdoor described by researchers this week was called Bvp47 and was first discovered in 2013 while investigating an incident involving a Chinese government agency.
