U.S. Department of Justice Charges Two Chinese Nationals for Their Alleged Involvement in a Number of Cyber-Attacks

The U.S. Department of Justice has charged two Chinese men with their part in planning and carrying out a number of cyber-attacks for over a decade.  According to the charges, Zhu Hua and Zhang Shilong carried out cyber-espionage on behalf of the Chinese Government as part of APT-10, also known as Red Apollo and Stone Panda.  The group’s activities are known to have targeted at least 12 different countries. The pair carried out their activity while working for Huaying Haitai Science and Technology Development Co., which claims to develop e-commerce websites and network operations.  While the pair are believed to currently be in China, the FBI announced that they plan on arresting them should they ever be found be outside of China
