PCMag Australia: Google: Chinese Hackers Are Posing as McAfee Antivirus to Phish Victims. “Chinese state-sponsored hackers may be impersonating antivirus provider McAfee in order to trick high-profile targets into downloading malware. The suspected Chinese hacking group, APT 31, has been resorting to the tactic, according to Google’s security team. Back in June, the company’s security researchers reported that APT 31 had been targeting Joe Biden’s Presidential campaign by sending phishing emails to his staff. The goal was to hijack their personal email accounts, but Google says the phishing attempts all appear to have failed.”
