Make sure first… Beijing strongly rejects Washington’s accusations of piracy

after being charged Washington pirates linked to Beijing By accessing the email account of the US ambassador to China, Nicholas Burns, the Chinese embassy in Washington denied the matter completely.

Beijing strongly rejected the accusations made by the United States, and confirmed in a statement that it was taking strong measures to combat cyber attacks and electronic theft in all its forms.

speculation and accusations

Chinese embassy spokesman Lu Bengio also added that his country firmly opposes cyber attacks and electronic theft in all its forms, stressing that it is a firm and clear position.

Lu Bengio emphasized the importance of providing sufficient evidence when identifying cyber-related incidents rather than relying on baseless speculation and accusations, he said.

The response of the Chinese embassy came after a report published by an American newspaper stating that hackers linked to China had penetrated the email account of Ambassador Burns, as a result of which hundreds of thousands of government messages were compromised.

According to the report, the alleged espionage campaign that led to the hacking of Ambassador Burns’ email account was revealed last week, in which hackers obtained information about several visits to China by US officials and international talks about US policies with China.

The report indicated that US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, and the inner circle of his closest advisors, were not the target of the cyber penetration, but were limited to a small group of senior US officials responsible for managing relations between the United States and China.

Continuous denial

China routinely denies hacking US organizations and has accused the US and its allies of targeting Chinese networks.

Chinese cyber spies have been stealing data from the US government and its allies for more than a decade, according to current and former intelligence officials.

While the outlines of the newly disclosed hack did not surprise officials or researchers in the cybersecurity field, many of which said it reflected China’s rapidly improving technical skills, it appeared to more accurately target individuals seen as lucrative intelligence targets.
