Boston-based Cybereason said the tactic gave hackers sweeping access to VIPs' call records, location data and device information — effectively turning the targets' cellular providers against them. Cybereason said that all the signs pointed to APT10 — the nickname often applied to a notorious China-linked cyberespionage group

A few years ago I got a notice from the US government that they would pay for me to get identity theft protection because the Office of Personnel" systems were hacked. I worked on FAA contracts 1999-2003.

All reports said that China was behind this. While I don't think China was interested in identity theft, but used the info to know who to buy off to serve China's interest from within the federal government.

All this BS about Russia when China is 1000 times the threat to the US is using Russia as a distraction.

My bet is, this telecom hack is to get leverage(blackmail info) on those (deep state)officials they couldn't buy off

How's that for a conspiracy theory?
