Infected Chinese inventory scanners ships off logistics intel

 

A Chinese manufacturer has been accused of implanting malware that steals supply chain intelligence in its hand-held scanner firmware.

Security firm TrapX says infected scanners have been sold to eight unnamed firms including a large robotics company.

Variants of the malware broke into enterprise resource planning platforms to steal financial, logistical and customer information which was exfiltrated to the unnamed accused Chinese manufacturer located in Shandong province, a block from the Lanxiang Vocational School said to be the headquarters of the Google Aurora attacks.
