Chinese Hackers Have Breached Online Betting and Gambling Sites

Since the summer of 2019, a group of professional Chinese hackers has been targeting and hacking into companies that run online gambling and online betting websites.

According to reports published this week by cyber-security firms Talent-Jump and Trend Micro, hacks have been officially confirmed at gambling companies located in Southeast Asia, while unconfirmed rumors of additional hacks have also come from Europe and the Middle East.

The hackers appear to have stolen company databases and source code, not money. 

The two security firms said the attacks had been carried out by a group they called DRBControl.

Currently, it is unclear if DRBControl is carrying out attacks on behalf of Beijing.

Attacks start with a spear-phishing link sent to targets. Employees who fall for the emails and open the documents they received are infected with backdoor trojans.
