CISA, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the National Security Agency (NSA) have released a joint Cybersecurity Advisory (CSA) providing the top Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) used since 2020 by People’s Republic of China (PRC) state-sponsored cyber actors. PRC state-sponsored cyber actors continue to exploit known vulnerabilities to actively target U.S. and allied networks, including software and hardware companies to illegally obtain intellectual property and develop access into sensitive networks.
CISA, the FBI, and the NSA urge U.S. and allied governments, critical infrastructure, and private sector organizations to apply the recommendations listed in the Top CVEs Actively Exploited by People’s Republic of China State-Sponsored Cyber Actors to increase their defensive posture and reduce the threat of compromise from PRC state-sponsored malicious cyber actors.
For more information on PRC state-sponsored malicious cyber activity, see CISA’s China Cyber Threat Overview and Advisories webpage, the FBI’s Industry Alerts, and the NSA’s Cybersecurity Advisories & Guidance.
