A United States cybersecurity firm says it has detected a surge in new cyberspying by a suspected Chinese group dating back to late January, when coronavirus was starting to spread outside China.

FireEye Inc said in a report on Wednesday it had observed a spike in activity from a hacking group it dubs "APT41" that began on January 20 and targeted more than 75 of its customers, from manufacturers and media companies to healthcare organisations and nonprofits.
