Luxury and luxury brands are now taking their own hits with high-profile brands being targeted by Chinese government hackers.
The world’s leading luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Versace, Prada, and Dolce &Gabbana have all been hit with hacks and other malicious activity by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), according to the UK-based cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike.
The attacks, which have also targeted celebrities and media personalities, have resulted in millions of dollars in lost sales, according to CrowdStrike, which was founded by a former National Security Agency analyst.
“The impact of this attack is enormous and it’s the worst we’ve seen,” said Kevin Mandl, co-founder and chief security officer at CrowdStrike.
“The attacks were first reported on Wednesday by the New York Times.
They were followed by a wave of news stories, including that the Pentagon has been hit by a cyberattack and that hackers had targeted its computers.
Chinese government hackers are known to be active in the country’s military and intelligence apparatus.
It has also been claimed that the Chinese government has been attempting to influence the presidential election through the use of sophisticated social media bots.
In the latest incident, the PLA is alleged to have taken control of a luxury luxury product company and its marketing department, according the Times.
This is the first time that the group has attempted to disrupt the operations of a major Chinese company, Mandl told Al Jazeera.
The attacks targeted the firm’s sales, marketing, supply chain, logistics, and accounting departments.
In addition to the high-end items targeted by the hackers, other brands were targeted as well.
The company also used a company owned by Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, who is the chairman of Guo’s conglomerate, the Dalian Wanda Group.
Guo has been targeted by hackers in the past, including a recent attack on his Twitter account.
The attack reportedly resulted in Guo deleting 140 posts, a significant amount of which were critical of China.
The group targeted Guo and his company with spear phishing emails, claiming that the emails were from the company’s own security team.
The emails were actually a fake sent by Guo, according an official from Guo Enterprises, which has offices in the US.”
This is a major escalation in China’s ongoing cyber war,” Mandl said.
Guowang is one of the world’s largest luxury brands and has been the subject of several high-level attacks by Chinese hackers.
Guoyang has been a target of other Chinese military cyberattacks.
The country has also launched cyberattacks against foreign companies, including Facebook, Yahoo, and Google, in retaliation for alleged military cyber attacks.
China has also targeted foreign companies using fake Chinese military emails sent through email accounts believed to belong to military intelligence.
The emails were sent out to a wide range of business entities including banks, hospitals, and oil and gas companies.
The United States is also suspected of hacking Guo-owned accounts.
The attack has led to a wave in hacking attacks targeting Guo firms, according Mandl.
Guao Enterprises is a subsidiary of Guoyang Group, a conglomerate that includes a major industrial group, the Guo Family Group.
In May, Guo announced that he would be stepping down as the CEO of Guos Group, but he has not yet done so.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal in November, Guoyong said that it would be easier to focus on other activities if the Guos group was not in a weakened state.
The company’s financial losses are estimated at more than $1 billion.
