I previously tweeted that a prior indictment was ~APT10. I was analytically lazy & wrong. So I want to highlight parts of the actual #APT10 indictment from today. First, DOJ used the term APT10. I can't recall other cases where DOJ has used an existing group name, can you? (1/n)
They also mentioned other group aliases. A reminder to consider @RobertMLee's valid points about how group names can't be exact overlaps due to different visibility and analysis methodology between companies (…). (2/n)
Noteworthy that the actors were associated with a company acting "in association with" MSS. This made me think of @Jason_Healey's Spectrum of State Responsibility (…). (3/n)

Long rumored @TheJusticeDept indictment of #APT10 is out.…
Here are my observations/highlights from reading the indictment (channeling my inner @pwnallthethings):
-the indictment indicates #APT10 operations started in 2006 and went through 2018. The 2006 activity was likely focused on US Government, Military, and defense contractors

Interestingly the indictment calls out multiple government organizations by name that were victims including:
@NASAGoddard, @NASAJPL, @LLNL, and the @USNavy
