A sophisticated hacking group targeted governments and corporations in Southeast Asia for a decade, marking one of the longest-running and most efficient campaigns unveiled, according to security company FireEye Inc.

Named APT30, the group increased hacking activity ahead of regional diplomatic meetings and also targeted at least 15 companies in communications, technology, finance and aviation, the U.S. cybersecurity provider said. Parts of India’s military were also targeted, it said.
