Defending the frontlines of cybersecurity is a never-ending battle, with new advanced persistent threat (APT) groups lurking to steal data, compromise infrastructure, and interfere with victim business operations. FireEye’s newly named threat group, APT41 is no exception. Their aggressive and consistent mode of operation, and highly sophisticated tactics, distinguishes them from other adversaries making them a double threat to contend with.

APT41 uniquely balances espionage activity concurrently with financially motivated activity driven by personal gain. Since 2012 FireEye has observed APT41 conduct in a wide range of operations including data theft, innovative supply-chain attacks, and the use of unique tools and targeting techniques.
