Hackers tied to China’s People’s Liberation Army have gained access to over two dozen critical systems.
The government has advised companies to update passwords and enhanced supervision of accounts with elevated access privileges. Also, they suggest businesses implement multi-factor authentication methods.
For individuals to safeguard themselves they suggest:
– Regularly update and strengthen passwords, avoiding common words and phrases, and using a mix of characters, numbers, and symbols.
– Enable multi-factor authentication on all personal accounts, opting for app-based authenticators or physical security keys when available.
– Stay vigilant against phishing attempts by not clicking on suspicious links or downloading attachments from unknown sources.
– Keep all software, including antivirus and operating systems, up to date with the latest security patches.
