It has been going on for a week now: Chinese hackers were mentioned TV news, printed on the first pages of newspapers and security websites. If you still don’t now what has happened, here’s a story: German government computer systems were compromised and several cyber attacks were launched against USA and UK governments. And guess what? All the tracks lead to China, which by the way has openly discussed cyber attacks as great possibility to fight more powerful military. According to USA defense secretary Robert Gates, internet attacks are the new way for one country to spy another. Is it the cold war again?
However, China denies government’s responsibility for the attacks. Chinese Foreign Ministry Jiang Yu even told that they won’t investigate these cases, because the charge is absurd and insulting.
There is no way to know what is behind these cyber attacks. Further reports to come regarding to this situation.
