In an effort to underscore that there are actual individuals behind the keyboard, Mandiant is revealing
three personas that are associated with aPt1 activity:
» The first persona, “UglyGorilla”, has been active in computer network operations since October 2004. His activities
include registering domains attributed to APT1 and authoring malware used in APT1 campaigns. “UglyGorilla”
publicly expressed his interest in China’s “cyber troops” in January 2004.
» The second persona, an actor we call “DOTA”, has registered dozens of email accounts used to conduct social
