Technical Details

Chuli.A is an information stealing trojan that was used in a targeted attack involving a Tibetan activist and several other high-profile human rights activists.

Chuli.A arrives onto a device via an installer named ‘WUCs Conference.apk’ and is installed as an application named Conference. When launched, it displays a string of text addressing several organizations.

In the background however, Chuli.A connects to a command and control (C&C) server at the IP address 64.78.161.133 to report the infection. It also collects device information and forwards the details to the server if instructed to do so via an SMS message. Collected information include:

  • Contacts data
  • GPS coordinates
  • Phone call logs
  • Stored SMS messages
