However, China isn't blaming Washington for the attacks -- it's looking for better solutions to fight hacking between the U.S. and China
A Chinese security official said that he has proof of several U.S. cyber attacks launched against China, and that there needs to be a better way of
communicating these attacks
between the two.
Huang Chengqing, director of the National Computer Network Emergency Response Technical Team/Coordination Center of China (CNCERT), said that the U.S. uses the media to heighten cyber security concerns about hacks from China without discussing it with the country first.
"We have mountains of data, if we wanted to accuse the U.S., but it's not helpful in solving the problem," said Chengqing. "They advocated cases that they never let us know about. Some cases can be addressed if they had talked to us, why not let us know? It is not a constructive train of thought to solve problems."
Chengqing went on to say that CNCERT has been cooperating with the U.S. and promptly addressed 32 Internet security cases from the U.S. (most were taken care of, with the exception of a few that didn't have enough information).
Chengqing added that U.S.-launched cyber attacks are just as critical as those accused of coming from China. According to CNCERT, 4,062 U.S.-based computer servers attacked 2.91 million mainframe computers in China.
However, China isn't blaming Washington for the attacks. Instead, it's looking for better solutions to fight hacking between the U.S. and China.
U.S. President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping are expected to meet in California this week, where cyber security is expected to be discussed. Obama plans to tell Jinping that the responsibility for any cyber attacks from China will be placed on Beijing's shoulders.
Back in March of this year, National Security Adviser Thomas Donilo warned that cyber attacks from China were
hurting relations between the two
, and that Obama wanted a better relationship with the country.
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that China was willing to "have constructive dialogue and cooperation on this issue with the international community including the United States to maintain the security, openness and peace of the Internet."

Nothing new. Way back in the 80's, the CIA was on campus (trying) to recruit me and several of my fellow CS classmates. They didn't get me or anyone that I knew, AFAIK. There are no doubt a few who took the job for altruistic reasons, but there are many more who took it because they didn't get any higher paying offers from the private sector. No doubt China has the same issue. And certainly nobody wants a loose canon, including the governments of the US and China, or any other nation.
