2014/06/10

Securityweek - (International) Researchers at CrowdStrike released a report on a cyberespionage group dubbed Putter Panda that has primarily targeted U.S, Japanese, and European aerospace, satellite, and communications industries and appears to be tied to the Chinese People's Liberation Army's Unit 61486. The group has been active since at least 2007 and mostly relies on custom malware that exploits vulnerabilities in popular software, according to the report.
