Symantec has discovered Chinese hacking of telecoms and satellites
Cybersecurity firm Symantec has exposed Chinese hacking of satellite communications and telecoms in the United States and Southeast Asia.
The company’s AI-based Targeted Attack Analytics (TAA) system helped researchers expose a hacking campaign from a group called Thrip.
On the surface, Symantec said the activity looked innocuous. TAA alerted Symantec’s investigation team and set them on the path to discovering the attack from a group the company has been monitoring since 2013.
