Tatsuya Sudo reports:
A Chinese group that has been accused by the U.S. government in a series of cybertheft cases around the world is now suspected in the 2016 hacking of the computer system used by Keidanren (Japan Business Federation).
Keidanren officials announced in November 2016 that 23 computers used in the federation’s system had been infected with a virus. However, no details were released about what hacking group might have been behind the cyberattack.
