Western allies accuse China of cyberattacks
The US and its Western allies have accused China of "malicious" cyber activities, thus threatening national security. A US representative said on Monday that China's "irresponsible behavior in cyberspace" blatantly contradicts its once self-proclaimed goal of being perceived as a responsible leader in the world. Rather, he said, the Chinese Ministry of State Security (MSS) was deliberately utilizing criminal hackers to carry out cyberattacks around the world and was certain that China was responsible for extortion via cyberattacks, among others. He mentioned so-called "crypto-jacking" and online theft specifically.
