Suspected China-backed hacking outfit has intensified attacks on organizations in Taiwan

A suspected China-backed hacking outfit has intensified attacks on organisations in Taiwan as part of Beijing’s intelligence-gathering activities on the self-governing island.

The hacking group, RedJuliett, compromised two dozen organizations between November 2023 and April this year, likely in support of intelligence collection on Taiwan’s diplomatic relations and technological development

RedJuliett exploited vulnerabilities in internet-facing appliances, such as firewalls and virtual private networks (VPNs), to compromise its targets, which included tech firms, government agencies and universities.

RedJuliett also conducted “network reconnaissance or attempted exploitation” against more than 70 Taiwanese organisations, including multiple de facto embassies
