A security advisory was recently published by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) warning about the attacks launched by China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS). As per the Agency report, Chinese hackers have trawled the US public networks to detect prominent networking devices and then manipulated the liabilities to gain entry into sensitive enterprise networks.
