“China has detected computer attacks on its Internet since late February. In the face of these attacks, organizations abroad have tried to gain control of computers in China, thus launching cyber attacks against Russia, Ukraine and Belarus,” he said on Friday. The Online Emergency Response Center (CNCERT) today.
The center noted in a statement that the target of 87% of the attacks was Russia and that most of the operations originated in the United States. Attacks from Germany and the Netherlands were few in number.
The People’s Republic of China has repeatedly accused the United States of being the source of most of the world’s cyberattacks and of wiretapping “competitors and allies”.
On the contrary, NATO allies, the United States and Washington such as the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and Japan recently accused the Beijing regime of being responsible for the attacks, specifically against Microsoft in early March.
According to Washington, the Ministry of Security of the People’s Republic of China, the country’s main police and intelligence agency, “hires hackers and criminals” to carry out unauthorized operations on a global level: cyber extortion, “cryptocurrency hijacking” and theft.
Beijing denies these accusations, stressing that there are 52,000 servers dealing with “toxic programs” located outside the territory of the People’s Republic of China and controlling 5.3 million users inside the country.
