Cyber-spies are targeting Mongolian businesses and government agencies to keep the attackers “aware” of the land-locked country’s relationships with “Western influences” like the US and the European Union, according to a recent report.
Cyber Squared’s ThreatConnect Intelligence Research Team (TCIRT) blames a “state-sponsored” Chinese hacking group for the campaign, which it says shows evidence of offensive tactics against Mongolian targets which are very similar to those long applied against Tibetan and Uyghur nationalists and affiliated groups.
The custom malware used in the anti-Mongolian campaigns shares the same functionality of malware used by an unidentified Chinese cyber-warfare unit that has been dubbed “Comment Crew” or “APT1”, Cyber Squared reports.
