Facebook exposed a long-running hacking campaign targeting Uighurs

Facebook exposed a long-running hacking campaign targeting Uighurs, a Chinese Turkish-speaking minority group. Journalists and dissidents, even those living outside of China, were targeted in this malicious campaign. One of the trojanized Android apps tracked by Facebook’s security team posed as an app related to prayer. In reality, it planted malicious code capable of tracking a user's movements. The hacking group has also deployed its spyware on users in Tibet, another region of China with a heavily surveilled minority.
