German Pharma Bayer Attacked by Chinese Hackers

Apr 6, 2019 | Cyber Security, Hack, Security

Reuters reports Bayer has stopped a Chinese cyber-attack.  Last year, Bayer found the malware WINNTI on their network.  They have found no evidence of data theft, but the security teams are still assessing the damage.  Evidence points to the ‘Wicked Panda’ group as the culprits.  Investigators believe that the presence of WINNTI suggests clear evidence of a sophisticated state actor.  Biopharmaceutical companies are major targets for industrial espionage from countries such as China.
