Researchers at Mandiant say that hackers dubbed Advanced Persistent Threat 41, or APT 41, believed to be sponsored by the Chinse government, have accessed computer systems in six U.S. state governments in an aggressive espionage campaign that included the use of the widespread Log4J computer bug detected late last year.
Mandiant didn’t disclose which specific states or government agencies had been breached in the campaign. The firm said that the hackers infiltrated networks in six states and that in some cases, more than one computer network belonging to separate agencies in one state was compromised.
