If you pay attention to the news, you read or heard recent reports about Chinese officials hacking into the IT systems of U.S. companies. They did this to acquire trade secrets. Now, it seems that the suspected hacking group, Putter Panda, is linked to the People’s Liberation Army in Shanghai. Plus, according to the network security company CrowdStrike Inc., they may have targeted the U.S. defense, European satellite, and aerospace industries since 2007.
According to CrowdStrike, the Chinese use customized malware disguised as emails to infiltrate U.S. IT systems. If you click on one of these files, it downloads malicious programs into your computer. Once this happens, they can see all your devices and connected networks. At this point, they can steal your proprietary and confidential information.
