T-APT-04 is a sophisticated and highly skilled threat actor that has been active since at least 2017. This group is believed to be based in China and is known for their advanced cyber espionage campaigns targeting government agencies, military organizations, and political entities in various regions around the world. The group has been linked to several high-profile cyber attacks, including Operation Cloud Hopper, which targeted managed service providers to gain access to their clients' networks and sensitive data. In late 2020, T-APT-04 was suspected of being behind a major cyber attack on the US government and private sector, which was later confirmed to be part of a larger campaign orchestrated by Russia. The attack, which exploited vulnerabilities in SolarWinds software, allowed the hackers to gain access to numerous government agencies and corporations. It is estimated that over 18,000 organizations were impacted by the attack, which was one of the largest and most complex cyber espionage operations ever carried out. T-APT-04 is considered a highly skilled and persistent threat actor that poses a significant threat to governments and businesses worldwide. The group's use of advanced techniques and tactics, combined with their ability to remain stealthy and evade detection, make them a major challenge for cybersecurity professionals. As such, it is crucial that organizations take proactive measures to secure their systems and networks against potential attacks from this and other similar threat actors.
