Too Long; Didn't Read

Check Point Research (CPR) warns of a new cyber espionage weapon being used by a Chinese threat group, after it identified and blocked an ongoing surveillance operation targeting a Southeast Asian government. Over the course of three years, the attackers developed a previously unknown backdoor into the Windows software running on the personal computers of its victims, enabling capabilities of live-espionage, such as screenshotting, editing files and running commands.
