A Chinese national has been charged by the U.S. Department of Justice with six counts of “economic espionage and theft of trade secrets.”

Xu Jiaqiang, 30, was arrested last December by the FBI, and is said to have passed secrets on to the Chinese government.

Federal investigators allege that Xu stole the “proprietary source code” of software from his former employer, “with the intent to benefit the National Health and Family Planning Commission of the People’s Republic of China.”

The source code was a clustered file system — or one that helps a computer’s performance “by coordinating work among multiple servers.”

It has been described as “a product of decades of work.”

“Xu allegedly stole proprietary information from his former employer for his own profit and the benefit of the Chinese government,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin of the Southern District of New York, in a statement issued Tuesday. Read more
