Malware used in the attack against RSA Security earlier this year was controlled from China, a well-known botnet researcher said Wednesday.
Joe Stewart, director of malware research for Dell SecureWorks, traced the command-and-control (C&C) servers used to oversee the RSA attack to networks in Beijing and Shanghai.
The attackers gained access to RSA's network by convincing a small number of the company's employees to open malware-infected Excel spreadsheets. The spreadsheets included an exploit for a then-unpatched vulnerability in Adobe's Flash Player.
