In this article “Syria has been the center of much international attention lately. There’s unrest in the country and the authoritarian government is using brutal tactics against dissidents. These tactics include using technology surveillance, trojans and backdoors.

Some time ago we received a hard drive via a contact. The drive had an image of the system of a Syrian activist who had been targeted by the local authorities.

The activist’s system had become infected as a result of a Skype chat. The chat request came from a fellow activist. The problem was that the fellow activist had already been arrested and could not have started the chat.”
