China-linked hacker group has gone quiet, but DHS expects resurgence | FCW


An advanced persistent threat group linked to the Chinese government accused of conducting a widespread cyber espionage campaign against IT service providers has gone quiet since two of its members were indicted by the Department of Justice last year, according to a Department of Homeland Security official, but it remains an active threat to American businesses.

The group, known as APT 10, has a history of targeting the U.S. technology supply chain.

In recent years, it has begun focusing attention on compromising managed service and cloud providers who often remotely manage IT systems and store data on behalf of client companies and — when compromised — can offer hackers wider access to the networks of multiple businesses.
