    Researchers at FireEye have disclosed an ongoing Phishing campaign that's using Dropbox as a delivery platform.

    The campaign is ran by a group that researchers have named "admin@338" and it's targeting media organizations in Hong Kong that publish pro-democracy materials.

    The attacks are using basic emails trapped with documents that deliver a malware payload called LowBall – which abuses Dropbox storage services as a command and control (C2) hub.

    In a blog post, FireEye says that the campaign started in August.
