China has been subjected to continuous cyber attacks since February, during which Internet addresses in the United States were used to seize control of Chinese computers directed against Belarus, Russia and Ukraine, the state news agency Xinhua reported on Friday.
«CNCERT/CC monitoring showed that since the end of February, China’s Internet has constantly faced cyber attacks from abroad. Foreign groups attacked Chinese users, taking control of computers in the country to carry out cyber attacks on Russia, Ukraine and Belarus“, – quotes the publication.
“After analysis, most of the addresses for these attacks came from the United States,” the report said, adding that some addresses were from other countries such as Germany and the Netherlands.
Cyberattacks have been a major source of tension between the United States and its allies and China, as the former accused China of conducting a global campaign of cyber espionage.
At the beginning of the “special operation” in Ukraine, the National Coordination Center for Computer Incidents stated that the threat level of cyber attacks on Russian resources is critical and recommends taking measures to improve the security of information resources.
