Chinese threat group APT41 launches “broadest campaign in years”
US security researchers have uncovered what they say is one of the broadest Chinese cyber campaigns in years. First observed in late January, the campaign has been launched by a threat group called APT41 that allegedly conducts cyber espionage on behalf of the Chinese government.
According to FireEye, the US security firm that has tracked the activity, Chinese campaigns have largely been narrowing in focus over the last few years. However, APT41’s latest spree of attacks buck this trend, targeting FireEye clients across 20 sectors and as many countries.
