Chinese Hacking Group Blamed for 2016 Keidanren Hacking

A Chinese hacking group identified as Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) 10 is now the prime suspect for the hacking of Japan’s Keidanren (Japan Business Federation) in 2016.

A report compiled by the UK’s BAE Systems, PwC, and the British National Cyber Security Center which said that APT 10 was responsible for systematically attacking Japanese organizations was also used by the US to indict two hackers with links to the Chinese hacking group.

It was noted that viruses used by APT10 to attack the Keidanren’s computer systems were very similar to those that had been mentioned in the report.
