The Insikt Group, the threat research division of Massachusetts-based Recorded Future, said the hacking group, given the temporary name TAG-28, made use of Winnti malware, which it said is exclusively shared among several Chinese state-sponsored activity groups. In its report, the Insikt Group suggested the cyberattack could be related to those border tensions.

In an ideal world, Leah Smithers said she could afford to wait for longer-term testing of the COVID-19 vaccines before getting the jab for her 10-year-old son. "I'm a parent who is concerned about the food I put in their bodies, about anything I put in their bodies," said Smithers, 43, who lives in the San Francisco suburb of Albany and has two other children, ages 13 and 4.

President Joe Biden will push world leaders on Wednesday to do more to curb the COVID-19 pandemic, and announce a U.S. pledge to buy 500 million more vaccine doses to donate to other countries. Holding a virtual summit to boost global vaccination rates, Biden hopes to show he is leading by example with the pledge https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/us-donate-an-additional-500-mln-covid-19-vaccines-world-2021-09-21, which will bring U.S. donations to the rest of the world up to more than 1.1 billion doses. The vaccines from Pfizer Inc and BioNTech SE will be made in the United States and shipped to low and lower middle-income countries starting in January, a U.S. senior administration official said ahead of the announcement.

Ailing Chinese property giant Evergrande has eased market jitters, for now at least. The firm said Wednesday (September 22) that it would make a payment due on a domestic bond. That calmed fears of an imminent default, with the potential to unleash financial chaos in China and beyond. China's central bank also helped, injecting $14 billion into the banking system in a signal of support. But the worries are far from over. Evergrande remains weighed down by around $300 billion in liabilities. It owes money to countless banks and other lenders, as well as retail investors and suppliers. That means the impact of any collapse would be complex and uncertain, raising fears of contagion across bond and stock markets. Evergrande has also made no mention of its plans regarding another bond payment due on Thursday (September 23), and one due next week. Even so, Wednesday's news did help to lift markets worldwide. European benchmark indexes rose around 1% in early trade. Evergrande's Frankfurt-listed shares jumped by around a quarter.
