Cyberespionage group APT 30

FireEye has revealed in a report the existence of a group of cybercriminals named APT30. This group had been carrying low profile cyber attacks against government agencies, commercial entities and journalists in Southeast Asia and India over the past ten years. The report explains how they used special techniques against "air-gap" networks where they used removable storage systems, as USB memory sticks, to infiltrate into government networks isolated from the Internet.

Also, the report indicates that this group would be sponsored by the Chinese government, although this point cannot be confirmed.
