A Chinese-speaking APT group, Calypso, has actively been targeting state institutions in six countries, hacking systems and injecting a program to gain access to internal networks, according to a report from researchers at Positive Technologies Expert Security Center.

The researchers found the hackers either exploited a remote code execution vulnerability MS17-010 or used stolen credentials.

Institutions in India were hit the hardest, followed by Brazil and Kazakhstan, Russia and Thailand and Turkey.
