The Australian government released an advisory late last week about increased cyber activity from a state actor against networks belonging to its agencies and companies in the country.
Behind the attack is a “sophisticated” adversary that relies on slightly modified proof-of-concept exploit code for yesteryear vulnerabilities, the government says. An unofficial blame finger points to China.
The attacker targets public-facing infrastructure with remote code execution exploits, a frequent choice being unpatched versions of Telerik user interface (UI).
