This screen capture of the English language version of the gh0st RAT software shows the commands that an attacker is able to execute on the compromised computer.

We engage in qualitative research among affected target audiences and employ techniques that include interviews, long-term in situ interaction with our partners, and extensive technical data collection involving system monitoring, network reconnaissance, and interrogation. Our field-based teams are supported by senior analysts and regional specialists, including social scientists, computer security professionals, policy experts, and linguists, who provide additional contextual support and substantive back-up.

We were able to discover several IP addresses within a DSL range in Hainan Island (PRC) that the attacker(s) used to communicate with computers infected with gh0st RAT. Finally, we were able to map out the methods and capabilities of the GhostNet by a triangulated analysis of three sources: 1) data obtained from our collection of socially engineered emails with backdoor attachments, 2) the captured network traffic from Tibetan targets; and, 3) data obtained by gaining access to the command and control interface.
