A report claims that the Chinese army is behind cyberattacks the U.S.

Many of the cyber attacks against the U.S. are rooted in a Chinese Army unit , according to the report submitted by a company specializing U.S. and Beijing has flatly rejected. The 60-page report Mandiant company specializing in Internet security, said that a group of hackers , identified as APT-1, have the "direct government support" Chinese for perpetrating a "vast campaign of cyber espionage long term. " Mandiant has located the origin of attacks to 141 institutions worldwide , most of them English-speaking-to the doors of a building on the outskirts of Shanghai , where it operates the 61,398 unit of Chinese People's Liberation Army. Although unable to locate Mandiant directly to team members inside the building, considered to be the most plausible explanation as to why so many attacks come from the same area. In all likelihood, the company says, the 61,398 unit is "one of the most prolific cyber spying groups , the sheer volume of information that has stolen "from lists contacts with business plans, he claims. The unit, surrounded by secret in China, has "missions, capabilities and resources" similar to those identified in the group of hackers.According Mandiant, attacks, which have occurred since at least 2006, increased two years ago and are directed against a score of sectors , from military contractors to chemical plants, to telecommunications companies. Many companies and organizations operating in sectors defined spied for China as strategically important in its economic five-year plan. Hackers were introduced in government networking spied for an average of almost a year, although in some cases the virtual presence of spies lasted more than four years. Beijing has strongly rejected accusations from the U.S. company, which he described as "baseless". In his daily briefing, the spokesman of Chinese Foreign Ministry, Hong Lei, said that "cyber attacks are anonymous and transnational , so it is very difficult to trace its origin. Perform baseless accusations is neither responsible nor professional ". Instead, Hong said, China is also a victim of "many attacks , which have increased over the years "and the" majority "of the computer that receives increasing attacks from the North American country."I'm just saying that among the numerous attacks that we are victims, those from the U.S. ranks first," he said. In October, a U.S. congressional report recommended limiting access to the U.S. market for Chinese telecom companies Huawei and ZTE due to security concerns and the possibility of espionage. In late January, the newspaper The New York Times , which in October faced the Beijing authorities to publish a story on the wealth of the family of Prime Minister Wen Jiabao, reported that Chinese hackershad infiltrated its system for four months. Amid these tensions between the first and second largest economy, the United States discussion approve regulations by which Washington could tackle cyber "preventive" without a prior declaration of war. This tone war was used by the U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, when, in a speech in New York in October, warned that the U.S. faces "a cyber Pearl Harbor" , in reference to possible Iranian hacker attacks, Russian or Chinese. The Chinese spokesman said Tuesday that his country "is firmly opposed to espionage "and" cyber attacks are an international problem that should be managed according to the mutual trust and comprehensive cooperation ". The spokesman for the Chinese government, which controls one of the most powerful devices on the planet censors, advocated promoting a code of conduct in international Internet on which "work to build a cyberspace free, safe and fair."
