 ARES Hacking Group Launches Cyberattack on Huawei, Stealing Critical Data

The hacking group known as ARES has emerged as a highly active cybersecurity threat, systematically launching attacks on corporate sectors, raising significant concerns within the realms of business and cybersecurity.

ARES is involved in a range of cyberattacks, from clandestine data theft operations to data sales. Their persistent efforts to exploit system vulnerabilities have prompted global corporations to intensify their cybersecurity measures and collaborate closely with cybersecurity authorities to confront these threats.

In a recent development, ARES has claimed responsibility for a cyberattack on Huawei, a prominent technology company. These attacks have encompassed covert data theft attempts.

The data stolen by ARES includes Huawei's core project server database, all projects that Huawei participates in include code, employee numbers, project managers, contact information, etc. This haul even includes designs related to Chinese ISP Ethernet networks.

However, it's important to note that ARES has not provided sample data to substantiate their claims regarding Huawei. Instead, ARES has advised potential buyers seeking verification to contact their support team.

This situation raises grave concerns for Huawei, as the data claimed by ARES, if authentic and purchased by malicious entities, could potentially be exploited by other threat actors. As such, it underscores the need for heightened vigilance and robust cybersecurity measures within the industry.
