Kenya arrested in Qatar for the first time targeted by phishing attack
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) – A Kenyan security guard who now faces charges in Qatar after writing convincing accounts that he was a low-paid worker there was targeted by a phishing attack just before his arrest, analysts said.
While Amnesty International and Citizen Lab analysts said they were unable to say who was targeting Malcolm Bidali, the phishing attack reflected other attacks previously carried out by Gulf Arab sheikhs targeting dissidents and political opposition. It would also require access to confidential information stored by telecommunications companies, usually only disclosed to government officials or security forces, to be useful as well.
