Police Security Service believes China is behind comprehensive data attack on county governors in Norway

In its investigation of a computer attack on several county governor offices 2.5 years ago, the Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) has found clues that point to China.

The head of counterintelligence at the PST told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) that they now have new information about the perpetrators behind the attack.

“In this specific case, we have intelligence information that points in a clear direction towards the actor APT31 being behind the operation against the county governor offices,” head of counterintelligence Hanne Blomberg at the PST told the channel.

APT31 is a player PST links to Chinese intelligence services.
