A large-scale cyber attack from a group targeting organizations in Japan, the United States, Sweden and many other European countries through IT services providers has been uncovered, the Swedish computer security watchdog said on Wednesday.
The cyber attack, uncovered through a collaboration by Britain’s National Cyber Security Centre, PwC and cyber security
firm BAE Systems, targeted managed service providers to gain access to their customers’ internal networks since at least
May 2016 and potentially as early as 2014.
The exact scale of the attack, named Cloud Hopper from an organization called APT10, is not known but is believed to involve huge amounts of data, Sweden’s Civil Contingencies Agency said in a statement. The agency did not say whether the cyber attacks were still happening.
