ChinaCopper and General Discussion on PA Threat DB

L0 Member

So we get an alert today for ChinaCopper.Gen C&C inbound traffic. In doing research to see what this is, we look at the Threat DB, only to find the description of ChinaCopper.Gen to be: "This signature detects ChinaCopper.Gen Command and Control Traffic. " No other information, and no matter how I search the Internet I only get information on metal copper coming out of China. 


Am I missing anything on where to search for what these are? And is anyone else frustrated at the lack of info in the ThreatDB?

Hi GStach,


Sorry for the confusion.


ChinaCopper.Gen Command and Control Traffic is not proper name. Should be ChinaChopper.Gen Command and Control Traffic. We already noted and now working to fix.


I believe that the following URLs gives detailed infromation about ChinaChopper.Gen Command and Control Traffic
