Weekly Intelligence Summary 16 April

April 16, 2021

A cyber-espionage campaign was found targeting the Vietnamese military and government, as well as other sectors and some entities in Thailand and Central Asia. The campaign featured sophisticated techniques, as well as a new remote-access trojan (RAT) and spyware. Even with a lack of complete details, researchers managed to link the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to a threat collective associated with the People’s Republic of China (PRC), and attributed it with low confidence to the “Cycldek” group. The campaign highlights the increasing technical sophistication of PRC-linked advanced persistent threat (APT) groups, problems with obfuscation and attribution, and the need to be aware of strategic and operational developments of these groups.
