According to the Global Times newspaper, a specialized institution in the country discovered the Trojan, called Nopen, a tool operated remotely. The Trojan mainly attacks machines with Unix/Linux operating systems.

It is capable of controlling Internet traffic on computers, stealing large amounts of user information and monitoring user activities.

The complexity of its technology allows it to perform multiple functions, hide and work alongside other means of cyber espionage.

The information comes days after it was revealed that the US National Security Agency launched cyberattacks against 47 countries for a decade.
