US lacks credible response to Chinese hacking

A new report by the US National Security Agency (NSA), Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reveals just how difficult, if not impossible it is, to fix cyber vulnerabilities caused by Chinese-supported intrusions. 

It does not offer an alternative to current-day computing networks and is indifferent to Cloud-based networks as being any more secure than wired networks.

The bottom line is that the critical infrastructure, which includes key industries, business, government and military systems, remains hostage to Chinese hacking and represents a major national security danger to the US and its allies, far surpassing the Russian ransomware attacks that also have hit some infrastructure targets.

The report is titled “Chinese State-Sponsored Cyber Operations: Observed TTPs.”
