China says is information shows hacking attacks originating from the US
Recently, security company Mandiant accused the Chinese military of conducting hack attacks against numerous businesses within the United States. Mandiant claimed that the
People's Liberation Army Unit 61398
was likely the driving force behind the hacking attacks.
The security firm maintains that this unit has carried out sustained attacks on a wide range of industries around the world. The Chinese Defense Ministry has denied the charges and recently issued a statement condemning Mandiant's claims.
"The report, in only relying on linking IP address to reach a conclusion the hacking attacks originated from China, lacks technical proof," the ministry said in a statement on its website (www.mod.gov.cn).
"Everyone knows that the use of usurped IP addresses to carry out hacking attacks happens on an almost daily basis," it added.
"Second, there is still no internationally clear, unified definition of what consists of a 'hacking attack'. There is no legal evidence behind the report subjectively inducing that the everyday gathering of online (information) is online spying."
Mandiant maintains that Unit 61398 has stolen "hundreds of terabytes of data from at least 141 organizations” for the past seven years. The security firm says that most of the victims of the located in the United States with smaller numbers of victims in Canada and Britain. The allegedly stolen data includes things such as details on mergers and acquisitions as well as e-mails of employees.
The Chinese Defense Ministry also says that its own information shows that a number of the hacking attacks against it originate from the United States. The ministry added, "But we don't use this as a reason to criticize the United States."
