On Monday, the United States, along with allies, accused China of producing a global cyberattack campaign. Earlier this year, a cyber attack on Microsoft, in which hackers working for Beijing were found guilty.
The United States is backed by NATO, the European Union, Britain, Australia, Japan, New Zealand and Canada. The information about this is spread by the White House.
“The United States and countries around the world are blaming the People’s Republic of China for irresponsible, disturbing and destabilizing behavior in cyberspace. This poses a significant threat to our economy and national security,” said US Secretary of State Ant.
Also Monday, the U.S. Department of Justice said four Chinese nationals have been charged with participating in a cyberattack campaign. This campaign was directed against dozens of government agencies, both in the United States and around the world.
The Chinese embassy in Washington has not yet commented on the matter to the media. However, in the allegations made so far, the Chinese authorities have argued that their country too is often the victim of cyber-attacks and that they categorically oppose such types of attacks.
