US government agencies reveal top weak points exploited by Chinese hackers since 2020

In order to attack government and critical infrastructure networks, hackers supported by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) most frequently use certain security flaws, argues the US National Security Agency (NSA), the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

In a combined alert, the three government agencies claimed that Chinese-sponsored cyber actors are targeting tech businesses and networks in the USA and its allies in order to enter private networks and steal intellectual property.

The report also includes suggestions for addressing each of the security holes that Chinese threat actors are said to use the most, as well as detecting techniques and weak technologies to aid defenses in identifying and thwarting incoming attacks.
