At the same time, APT41 pursues its own goals, extracting financial benefits from attacks, which is unusual for other groups under the Chinese government, according to FireEye.

APT41 is known to include at least two people with the pseudonyms Chzan Xuiguan and Wolfji. The group probably has connections with other hacker organizations like BARIUM and Winnti.

FireEye also evaluated at what time of the day the APT41 attacked the gaming industry (its core target) and businesses from other areas. It turned out that this was happening outside the framework of a standard working day - probably these people, among other things, have the main job.
