Chinese Hackers Target India and Hong Kong

Researchers from Malwarebytes have discovered a new hacking campaign aimed at government agencies in India and residents of Hong Kong intending to steal sensitive information. The attacks followed India’s ban of 59 China-made apps over privacy concerns and the discussion of the controversial security law in Hong Kong. The researchers say:

„The lures used in this campaign indicate that the threat actor may be targeting the Indian government and individuals in Hong Kong, or at least those who are against the new security law issued by China.“
