Researchers have disclosed three cyberespionage campaigns focused on compromising networks belonging to major telecommunications companies.
On Tuesday, Cybereason Nocturnus published a new report on the cyberattackers, believed to be working for "Chinese state interests" and clustered under the name "DeadRinger."
According to the cybersecurity firm, the "previously unidentified" campaigns are centered in Southeast Asia -- and in a similar way to how attackers secured access to their victims through a centralized vendor in the cases of SolarWinds and Kaseya, this group is targeting telcos.
Cybereason believes the attacks are the work of advanced persistent threat (APT) groups linked to Chinese state-sponsorship due to overlaps in tactics and techniques with other known Chinese APTs.
