Chinese Spy Group Recruiting Cambodian Translators

Post by techietraveller84 »

Since last week, online security forums have been writing about a Chinese spy/hacker group that was recruiting Cambodian translators through a front company called Hainan Xiandun.

The efforts started in March 2018, just before the July 2018 elections.

This is just another news splash that's making work that much tougher for Chinese businessmen and Chinese projects.

The new information gives the names of the companies that were trying to recruit Cambodians, as well as a few more details. This is what makes it interesting.

Because it's an article I remember reading a couple months back. A poster asked if anyone knew anything else. I shared.

Any other dumbass questions?
