‘Ragnarok Online’ company targeted by Chinese hackers

One of China’s largest state-sponsored hacking groups has attempted to breach the internal network of Gravity, the South Korean gaming company behind popular Ragnarok Online MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game). The intrusion attempts are believed to have taken place earlier this year, although it is unclear if they were successful or not. The attempted attacks came to light today after cyber-security firm QuoIntelligence (QuoINT) published a report on new malware strains it discovered, which it attributed to a Chinese hacker group known as Winnti (aka APT41, BARIUM, Blackfly).
