The 78020 unit of the PLA and the territorial agrandizzement
The ThreatConnect and Defense Group Inc. have successfully managed to find and put in their report two documents of which the heading shows the involvement of:

  • Ge XingŠ‹¯ (as the greensky27 member of the Naikon Group such as described in the article)

  • whose unit is indeed the 78020 unit: 'æ78020•"'à

  • from the PLA:'†š l–¯‰ð•úŒR

  • located in the province of Yunnan: ‰_"ì

  • and more specifically in the city of Kunming:©–¾.

 

Ge Xing is actually involved in the study of the region through the titles of the available documents in the ThreatConnect – DGI report:

  • 'ך "ì•"–sz—Ñ•ª—£‰^"®"Iá¢"W–¨ŸÇÍ

A light analysis of the development trend of Muslim separatist movements in Southern Thailand.

  • DŒã'ך "I­¡–¯å‰»i'ö"I"Áêy‹yŒ´ˆö•ªÍ

Cause analysis and features of the political democratisation process in postwar Thailand.

 

At last, the South China Sea draws 'boundless' efforts from mainland China because of its reportedly strategic natural resources and because of its seapower augmentation as a countermeasure to freedom of navigation in what she considers as her patrimonial sea³PŠC.

First comment, Re: PLA/China cyberspying,
"First comment" means there's a new player in the game. For full disclosure, I'm a Native North American, living and working in our new GLOBALLY - connected planet. Our HOME. We really are all in this together, now, folks. Let's remember Bucky Fuller, and acknowledge that we're all crew members of Spaceship Earth. The internet is the command-and-control communications and trade infrastructure for ALL of us. But we're flying through uncharted territory. Safety and security must remain high on our priority lists. Realistically, whether "Ge Xing" is or is not a PLA hacker matters little to me personally. But that's not the point.

Knowledge is power, and power is life. China is a great and ancient nation, but the current

"commmunist" government are as little children in a world of adults. And America is a very young adult.

We just can't afford to let bad actors and bad guys run rampant across our networks.

And the more good guys we have, and the more we know, and can do, the safer and more peaceful and productive we ALL are. We all mostly know all this, but we also need reminding.
