#CyberHeadlines: Operation Cloud Hopper- APT10 Hacks Target MSPs
A new report from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), in conjunction with BAE systems and PwC, details what they refer to as “one of the largest ever sustained global cyber espionage campaigns”. Using custom malware and spear phishing, Chinese hacker group APT10 is believed to be behind unprecedented attacks to Cloud Managed Service Providers in countries including the UK, Japan, France and the US.
The authors of the report believe APT10 to be based in China because the attacks demonstrated a pattern in line with China Standard Time and claim that the targeting of specific commercial enterprises “closely aligned with strategic Chinese interests”. The attacks targeted multiple types of sensitive data including intellectual property and personal information. The organizations behind operation Cloud Hopper are expected to release a further report this week into the detailed methods that ATP10 has used in its campaign in a bid to encourage firms to take a proactive approach to checking if their systems have been targeted.
