U.S. security firm finds Chinese responsible for cyber attacks

| No Comments

A U.S. security firm published a report on Tuesday that links more than 100 cyber attacks on U.S. companies to the Chinese military, news reports say.

According to a report by the Washington Post, the Virginia based security firm, Mandiant, links the attacks to a Chinese military group they refer to as APT1. This group was traced to a building on the edges of Shanghai, where multiple networks are operating reportedly along with high speed fiber optic lines provided by China Telecom.

The Washington Post reports that the attacks were targeted towards 147 companies. In the majority of attacks, terabyte-size pieces of data were stolen.

CNN reports that the Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei denied any charges against the Chinese military. He said, in fact, that China is a target of many cyber attacks from the U.S.
