Chinese cyber-gang targets UK firms
Global hacking operation

A Chinse cyber gang has been hitting UK firms as part of a "systematic" global cyber espionage campaign.

Dubbed APT10 the group used custom malware and "spear phishing" techniques to target managed outsourced IT service companies.

According to the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and cyber units at defence group BAE systems and accountancy firm PwC the gang were found to have used the companies as a way into their customers' systems since 2016, although there is evidence to suggest they had first employed the tactics from as early 2014.
