The agency added that “according to Supo intelligence, APT31 was responsible for the attack”. It didn´t mention China by name or the group´s alleged links to the government in Beijing. The statement posted also on the agency’s Twitter site in English. […]

FireEye, one of the world´s major cybersecurity firms, and other data security firms have linked APT31 to the Chinese government or operations conducted on its orders.
