Technical Details

Trojan-Spy:W32/FinSpy is a component of the surveillance product FinFisher, a commercial trojan manufactured and sold by a UK-based company called Gamma International. This trojan has reportedly been used against citizens in Egypt, Bahrain and Turkmenistan, as well as other locations.

Once FinSpy has infected a computer, it can be used to remotely monitor the system, including taking screen shots, recording keyboard strokes and intercepting Skype communications. It is also reportedly able to track mobile devices and monitor activities, including messaging and calls, made on the affected devices.
