Project CameraShy Closing The Aperture On China’s Unit 78020

Get Asset

China is aggressively claiming territory deeper into the South China Sea, threatening economic and political stability in the Southeast Asia and beyond. The territorial activity is accompanied by high-tempo cyber espionage and malware attacks, malicious attachments and spear phishing, directed at Southeast Asian military, diplomatic, and economic targets.

ThreatConnect®, in partnership with Defense Group Inc., has attributed the targeted cyber espionage infrastructure activity associated with the “Naikon” Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) group to a specific unit of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA). Our assessment is based on technical analysis of Naikon threat activity and native language research on a PLA officer within Unit 78020.
