Researchers at Cybereason say that at least five major telecommunication providers from Southeast Asia have been hacked over the past years by different Chinese cyber-espionage groups.
The researchers linked the hacks to three different Chines actors, Gallium (Soft Cell), Naikon APT, and TG-3390 (APT27, Emissary Panda). Despite a degree of connection to Chinese espionage efforts, the three actors did not appear to collaborate. Although the groups have been linked to intrusions at five Southeast Asian telcos, the same three groups were also known to carry out operations in other geographical areas, so it’s likely more telcos have been targeted.
