Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In recent targeted cyberattacks, targeted malware display embedded or downloaded decoy documents upon their execution as a camouflage. In this study, we focus on the contents of the decoy documents obtained from samples used for targeted attacks. We show that we can often infer potential targets of the samples from the contents of the decoy documents. Moreover, we show and confirm that although most of the decoy documents are from publically available information, some decoy documents contain confidential information that is available for only limited group of people implying that at least one of them has been already compromised.
