CrowdStrike, an American cybersecurity company indicated that a CCP-related hacker group, LightBasin, has been infiltrating into the mobile networks around the world since 2016 or earlier. They use the most sophisticated tools to obtain call logs and message records of phone users from network operators.
Telecommunication companies have long been the prime target of hacker attacks. CrowdStrike’s Senior Vice President, Adam Meyers stated that attacks were related to the CCP including the use of cryptography that relies on phonetic versions of Chinese Pinyin. Hackers are also using similar techniques that were applied by the CCP in its previous attacks. Programs can retrieve specific data unobtrusively.
An agency of the U.S. Homeland Security said that it received the relative report and will cooperate with U.S. telecom providers to prevent continuous hacking. The U.S. Treasury also emphasized the importance of cooperation between the U.S. and its allies in combating cyberattacks on Tuesday.
