U.S. Security Agency: Communist China Backed Hackers Targeting Major Telecom Companies

It is reported on June 20th that U.S. security agencies have warned hackers controlled by Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have targeted major telecommunications companies and Internet service providers since 2020.

Advisers from the National Security Agency (NSA), Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said the hackers “continue to exploit publicly known vulnerabilities,” using tactics to bypass defenses and keeping themselves undetected.

The agencies did not identify companies that got attacked, but they noted most hackers have come mainly from Communist China since 2020. The last warning was issued by the U.S. government in 2017 about “malicious cyber activity in China.”

In March 2022, a Communist China hacker group broke into at least six U.S. state government online systems in an attempt to compromise and gain access to their networks. The Epoch Times contacted the Communist China embassy in Washington, but the embassy spokesperson responded with email, saying that the U.S. allegations were “baseless.”
