Chinese Hackers Go After Norwegian Businesses

Chinese hackers have been accused of stealing private and intellectual data stole from, a large Norwegian provider of IT services and a number of other businesses between November 2017 and September 2018. 

The new  Report  by Rapid7 and Recorded Future say that a Chinese government sponsored hacking group, called APT10, has stolen information and data from Visma the Norwegian business that offers cloud software security for companies.

This hack was not just on Visma as an American law firm was also hacked along with a total of at least nine businesses and the US government in December 2018 has now charged two Chinese with being part of these attacks.
The Visma attack took place on the 17th August 2018 and the hackers used stolen IDs, that Visma used as it’s security information for access to their internal network. 

Visma have said in a statement, “Recorded Future has released a report on the investigation of a cyberespionage campaign conducted by a state-sponsored threat actor towards US and European companies last year.

The report commends Visma's security work and transparency in the aftermath of the investigation and highlights the importance of industry collaboration in preventing cybercrime.

“The report is a summary of an investigation of a sustained cyberespionage campaign conducted by Chinese state-sponsored threat actor, APT10, targeting at least three companies in the United States and Europe uncovered by Recorded Future and Rapid7 between November 2017 and September 2018.”

The Five Eyes (US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand) and Japan, have accused China of the hacking attacks.
