Chinese hackers likely are behind a series of cyberattacks against telecommunications companies around the world, security researchers have reported. The campaign, dubbed “Operation Soft Cell,” has been active since 2012, according to Cybereason. There is some evidence suggesting even earlier activity against the telecommunications providers, all of whom were outside North America. The attackers attempted to steal all data stored in the active directory servers of the organizations, including all usernames and passwords in the companies.
