As early as March 2012, we have spotted a number of Tibetan-themed campaigns, and we’ve documented some of them through this blog. So far, the attacks are pretty consistent: they usually arrive as emails with pro-Tibetan sentiments as subjects, and have malicious file attachments.
Very recently, however, we found one Tibetan-themed campaign that also touches a very relevant current event: the 2012 summer Olympics in London.
