US Intelligence Warns Against Tech Supply Chain Attacks
The US National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) recently warned in its Foreign Economic Espionage Report that countries such as China, Russia, and Iran are gearing up attacks made via the technology supply chain.
NCSC director William Evanina said that cyber-actors are now targeting supply chains to get around tough corporate perimeters. One example is the booby-trapped version of CCleaner – a computer-cleaning program – which was discovered last September.
The intelligence community further added that software supply chain infiltration has already threatened critical infrastructure and is likely to hit other sectors next.
