  • A Chinese cybersecurity company implicated in a major data leak reveals its capability to hack into the UK Foreign Office and successful attacks on public bodies and companies in Asia and Europe.
  • i-Soon, a private company providing cybersecurity services for China’s military, police, and security services, was found to have completed successful attacks in the United Kingdom, France, and several Asian countries over an eight-year period, raising concerns about potential compromises of sensitive information.
  • The leak of 577 documents and chat logs details i-Soon’s activities, including discussions about running disinformation campaigns on social media platforms and targeting organizations such as the UK Foreign Office, British Treasury, Chatham House, Amnesty International, and individuals like Jens Stoltenberg, NATO secretary-general. The data leak raises questions about motives and potential repercussions for national security. The lack of transparency surrounding cybersecurity practices further complicates the issue.
