The group, commonly known as APT 12, has over the years been engaged in a series of computer intrusions designed to obtain sensitive information from military contractors, government agencies and,journalists.

The group is said to be back using updated hacking tools from the Backdoor.APT.Aumlib and Backdoor.APT.Ixeshe malware families. The updates are said to make it easier for the tools to evade intrusion detection services deployed to block hack attacks.
