US accuses China of hacking Microsoft.
The US government has accused China of “unmasking” U. intellectual property by stealing the personal information of millions of people through hacking attacks launched in retaliation for the September 11, 2001 attacks.
The government’s accusation, made to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), also claims that China was “working with other countries to undermine the U. intellectual property system,” according to a report on Thursday.
The report comes amid a major hacking controversy that’s sparked a wave of congressional investigations — including those by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) and the Senate Judiciary Committee — as well as calls for legislation and executive orders, according to the New York Times.
The United States intelligence agencies have accused China of waging a “cyber war” against the U. Internet infrastructure using stolen intellectual property and malware programs that are designed to infect systems and computers and steal data from them.
The term “cyberwar” refers to an information-warfare war waged by groups or countries against each other through cyber attacks, including computer viruses, denial-of-service attacks and the theft of intellectual property.
Cyberattacks, like the one Beijing has launched against U. networks, are designed to destroy an adversary’s computer network and information, rather than simply to harm the target.
According to the latest government report, Beijing launched two attacks against the U. intellectual property system in retaliation for the attacks.
An email sent by the Chinese Foreign Ministry to the U. Embassy in Beijing revealed that China had “conceived a new cyber war” against the U. by hacking software used by U. In the email, China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that it would “attack our own U. intellectual property system from the inside.
U.S. government officials have accused China of a massive cyberattack on Microsoft.
When news broke that China had targeted Microsoft, the tech giant had been under a bit of a cloud of doubt.
First, it said the China Cyber Security Incident Response Team was “looking into” the company.
“We have concerns about the security of Windows systems connected to the Internet, and we are alert to anything that may impact the security of Windows systems,” Microsoft Corp. spokeswoman Katherine McFarland said in an email. “We take these issues very seriously.
But now, news of the attack has spilled out far and wide. China’s media has been full of breathless reports, and the United States has been among the first to acknowledge the attack.
[T]he Chinese government’s response to the attack has been both swift and unequivocal. In a statement on Thursday, Chinese President Xi Jinping described the attack as a “major attack” that took “the lives of many citizens,” and warned that any people “involved in this crime would be treated as common criminals.
One week later, however, he called for “restraining pressure and restraint to prevent further violations in cyberspace” – a line from which President Obama took a slightly different, less threatening stance.
“We urge the Chinese government to exercise all necessary measures to stop acts of cyber-espionage and cyber-crimes against Chinese companies and people,” Obama tweeted. “It is a top priority for the United States.
The response from President Donald Trump has been markedly different.
Secretary General of the NATO Jens Stoltenberg urged all States to act responsibly in cyberspace.

He specifically reminded them of their obligation to uphold UN security and development obligations in cyberspace and to enhance cybersecurity.

The Secretary General also recalled the commitment of all NATO partners to NATO’s strategic defense and mutual assistance concepts.
The Secretary General further recalled the successful summit meetings with NATO and the European Union (EU) as well as the fact that the NATO-EU Association Agreement has been extended.
This is the seventh summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
The Secretary General said that the Alliance will continue to work with its partners and member States to strengthen NATO and that the Alliance will continue to enhance its capacity to defend its interests.
The Secretary General recalled that a decision would be taken on further measures to reinforce the Alliance and increase our readiness. The question would be debated at the summit.
The Secretary General also added that a decision would be reached on further measures to strengthen our capacity to defend our interests and our own and that question would be debated at the summit.
