Insikt Research Report
Using a combination of large-scale, automated network traffic analytics and expert analysis, Recorded Future’s Insikt Group has identified ties between a suspected Chinese state-sponsored threat activity group tracked as RedFoxtrot and the Chinese military intelligence apparatus, People's Liberation Army (PLA) Unit 69010, located in Ürümqi, Xinjiang.
