FAS

A gene on chromosome 10q24.1 that encodes a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily which is a receptor for TNFSF6/FASLG. FAS contains a so-called death domain, and plays a central role in regulating apoptosis. Ligand binding to FAS results in the formation of a death-inducing signalling complex, comprised of Fas-associated death domain protein (FADD), caspase 8 and caspase 10.

Molecular pathology

The Mandiant Report focuses on the most prolific group, which Mandiant refers to as APT1, and the report explains that the group is most likely a government-sponsored organization.
(112) See Mandiant, supra note 16, at 7 (concluding that APT1 was given direct governmental assistance and was thus a state sponsored venture).
Throughout its seven-year long observation, Mandiant determined that the APT1 cyber command is located within the 2nd Bureau of the GSD 3 rd Department.
It is important to acknowledge Mandiant concluded "APT1" is the Chinese military unit 61398; therefore, based on this premise, the two terms will be used interchangeably for the purposes of this note.
(127) See Mandiant, supra note 16, at 21 (detailing Mandiant's observations of the scope and location of organizations targeted by APT1).
(131) See Mandiant, supra note 16, at 21 (drawing comparisons between Mandiant's investigation of APT1 and the PLA's Unit 61398).
at 1 (stating the date China's 12th Five Year Plan was released); see also Mandiant, supra note 16, at 24 (surmising that the chinese government may have a played an active role in APT1's cyber espionage campaign based on similarities between the industries exploited and China's governmental objectives).
(138) See Mandiant, supra note 16, at 25 (emphasizing the extent of APT1's cyber exploitations).
