The Chinese Winnti hacking group, also known as 'APT41' or 'Wicked Spider,' targeted at least 80 organizations last year and successfully breached the networks of at least thirteen.

This is according to Group-IB's researchers, who have been following Wintti's activities and describe 2021 as one of the most "intense" years for the Chinese hackers.

The researchers say that Wintti targeted hospitality and software development firms in the U.S., an aviation firm in India, government, manufacturing, and media entities in Taiwan, and even software vendors in China.
