Korean Chinese speaking cybercriminals?
‘In the autumn of 2011, a Trojan was detected on a large number of computers – all of them linked by the fact that they were used by players of a popular online game. It emerged that the piece of malware landed on users’ computers as part of a regular update from the game’s official update server.’ ref
How did this Chinese-Korean malware get onto the game servers? Why were Bayer employees connecting to game servers on company time?
“The malware was spotted on Bayer PCs in early 2018, with the company silently monitoring its behavior for more than a year before finally pulling the plug on the operation last month and notifying authorities.”
I don't mean to be rude, Shaun Nichols in San Francisco, but I call baloney on that whole report. Most probably the computers were randomly infected with malware for more than a year before anyone noticed.
‘These characters appear to be Korean, meaning “desktop”. This means the attackers were working on a Korean Windows operating system. Therefore, we can presume that the attack is not exclusively the work of Chinese speaking cybercriminals’ ref
Make yer mind up, Chinese/Japanese/Korean/Iranian/Venezuelan .. whoever is America's current bogeyman ..
