From cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 article:

The term advanced persistent threat, or APT, joined cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 common vocabulary of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 information security profession in mid-January, when Google announced its intellectual property had been cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 victim of a targeted attack originating from China.

Nice. Thanks for clearing things up Richard. I've been dealing with APTs since 2002 and I was like, "What's up with this new term?? Why is everyone treating APT like it's something new? Why are people getting so excited about all of this?" Now it makes sense. lol

My recommended solution for dealing with APT: Connectivity auditing!

Cheers

I'm baffled why cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 word "China" is classified. The source IP is coming from China, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 attackers browser is set to Mandarin Chinese....
Quacks like a duck, walks like a duck.....

APT, why not China....no wonder cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is confusion
