Woman with Chinese passport, malware arrested at Trumps Mar-a-Lago resort

Secret officials arrested a woman at President Trump's Florida resort this weekend after she found wearing two Chinese passports and a thumb drive with malicious software on it, according to court documents.

The prosecutor accuses the woman Yujing Zhang of first saying to the security officers at Mar-a-Lago that she was there to go to the swimming pool and because of a clear language barrier, the staff at the club considered that she was a relative of one of the club's members.

Once in the basics, Zhang told a receptionist that she was there for a UN event scheduled later in the day on Chinese-American relations. No such event was on the schedule, so the receptionist called the secret service according to court records.

After Zhang had stopped and questioned, a search of her possessions showed four mobile phones, a laptop, a hard drive, and a thumb drive containing "malicious malicious code" according to the criminal complaint. The document says she told Secret Service agents that a Chinese friend instructed her to travel from Shanghai to the Presidential Florida Resort and contact a Trump family member.

The authorities said even though she originally claimed she was looking for the pool

She is required to make false statements to a federal law enforcement officer and enter a restricted area.
