Donot APT Group Targets Pakistani Businessman In China

The Donot APT group, also known as APT-C-35, has been targeting a Pakistani businessman working in China since May. The group sends the victim a macros-laden Excel file as an attachment in a spear phishing email. Once the victim enables macros, it installs a downloader that installs other backdoor, keylogging, and downloader plugins. Donot is known to target entities in Pakistan and South Asian countries for cyber espionage purposes. Researchers have observed at least four campaigns against Pakistan since 2017.
