The UK’s Internet Security Center NCSC has accused the Chinese Ministry of Defense of breaking into the computer systems of several actors, including the Finnish parliament.
Last fall, the Finnish parliament announced that someone in its computer system had broken data and accessed it. Then, in the spring of 2021, a total of tens of thousands of actors – officials and companies – would have been subjected to similar data breaches.
Now the British authority NCSC is releasing a statement according to which the Hefnium group Hefnium, which has links with the Chinese government, is behind most of the incursions. More than 30,000 players have been affected in the United States alone, and many more worldwide.
“The attack on Microsoft Exchange servers is another example of the evil that the Chinese government supports on the Internet. This kind of behavior is completely unacceptable and we, like our partners, do not hesitate to intervene when we see it,” the NCSC chairman said. Paul Chichester.
The NCSC believes that this infiltration has helped to see comprehensive spying on behalf of China.
In addition, the NCSC writes that China’s Ministry of Defense was behind the infiltration of the Finnish parliament last autumn. Later military databases in various countries were also attacked.
Like the United Kingdom, the United States condemns the intervention of the European Union, NATO, Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and, not least, China.
“The Chinese government, unlike the Russian government, will not do this themselves, but they will protect those who do it and help make it possible,” the president said. Joe Biden News agency AFP
China denies the allegations. The government should not have allowed infiltration in Finland, the United States or anywhere else in the world.
– The United States has mobilized its allies to unjustly criticize China over IT security. A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said it was politically motivated and fully motivated Zhao Legion.
