Two UK-based companies, a technology/software vendor as well as a major financial institution, have been forced by a Chinese bank to install tax software on their systems. However, the software was compromised with malware.
“Discussions with our client revealed that [the malware] was part of their bank’s required tax software,” Trustwave said today.
“They informed us that upon opening operations in China, their local Chinese bank required that they install a software package called Intelligent Tax produced by the Golden Tax Department of Aisino Corporation, for paying local taxes.”
