2015/09/17

Forbes - (International) Trend Micro released research confirming that the Chinese advanced persistent threat (APT) group dubbed Iron Tiger was observed stealing trillions of bytes of data from U.S. defense contractors, intelligence agencies, FBI-based partners, other government entities, and tech-based contractors in the electric, aerospace, intelligence, telecommunications, energy, and nuclear engineering industries, including Westinghouse Electric Company. The group is believed to be an iteration of Emissary Panda/Threat Group 3390, who previously focused on east-Asian political targets.
