Two US Lawmakers Say China Hacked Their Office Computers

Posted by Author on June 12, 2008

By VOA News, US, 11 June 2008-

Two members of the U.S. Congress say the Federal Bureau of Investigation has found that their computers were hacked by sources inside China.

Representative Frank Wolf of Virginia and Representative Chris Smith of New Jersey said Wednesday they suspect China targeted their computers because they are longtime critics of China’s human rights record.

Representative Wolf says four of his computers were hacked beginning in August of 2006. Representative Smith says two of his computers were compromised beginning in December of 2006.

Wolf and Smith say hackers have attacked the computers of other U.S. lawmakers as well.

China has not yet responded to the allegations.

The threat of Chinese Internet espionage has been an increasing concern for the United States.

U.S. officials say they are investigating whether Chinese operatives secretly copied the contents of a U.S. government laptop last year during a visit to China by Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez.

China’s Foreign Ministry last week called the allegation “totally groundless” and “highly irresponsible.”

Last year, a report by the U.S.-based software security company McAfee said China is the most aggressive of 120 countries that carry out Internet espionage.

The report said Chinese computer hackers allegedly gained access to German, Indian and U.S. government computer networks during 2006 and 2007.
