China hackers target Southeast Asia militaries

Bitdefender has reported that APT group NAIKON targeted military organizations in Southeast Asia between June 2019 and March 2021. With cyber-espionage and data theft as its goal, NAIKON used a backdoor named Nebulae and the RainyDay backdoor as parts of the attack:
“NAIKON is a threat actor that has been active for more than a decade. Likely tied with China, the group focuses on high-profile targets such as government agencies and military organizations in the South Asia region.”

The Hacker News has reported on Chinese hackers targeting military orgs specifically in Vietnam.

I have long thought China needs more focus in security. I hope to have a feature based on the threats posed by the CCP and corporate actors soon.
