  • Mustang Panda Hijacks TP-Link Routers of European Foreign Affairs Entities

European foreign affairs organizations are being targeted by a Chinese state-sponsored Camaro Dragon hacking group with a custom malware variant. This group has been found infecting residential TP-Link routers with a specialized malware called Horse Shell. Attackers can execute arbitrary commands, steal files, and even leverage the malware as a SOCKS proxy to facilitate communication between various devices.
