U.S. ‘Losing’ Cyber War, Says House Intelligence Chairman

Posted by Author on February 26, 2013

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the United States is losing the cyberwar with the Chinese government.

“They use their military and intelligence structure to [steal] intellectual property from American businesses, and European businesses, and Asian businesses, repurpose it and then compete in the international market against the United States,” Rogers said.
Roger’s comments on ABC’s “Meet the Press” came after a report was released last week that details the Chinese military cyberattacks on 140 U.S. targets, including companies involved in the critical infrastructure of the country.

Rogers said the report is just the tip of the iceberg, and the United States is likely receiving at least 140 attacks per day.

Rogers said the actions are unprecedented, and the situation is getting exponentially worse because there is no consequence or punishment for the actions.

Rep. Eliot Engle, D-N.Y., also on “Meet the Press” Sunday, said the United States must communicate with China that the attacks must stop and there must be a price to pay. UPI

FACTS & FIGURES

The Obama administration is considering whether to use economic sanctions to retaliate against China for allegedly hacking into and spying on U.S. companies, but aggressive measures risk sparking a trade war with an important economic partner. The Hill

The cybersecurity accusations against China come after The New York Times, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal all reported their networks were compromised by hacks believed to have originated in China, according to China Daily USA.

China has fought back against U.S. accusations that China is stealing large amounts of data from U.S. companies.

Speaking at a daily news briefing on Tuesday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei denied the accusations. “Cyberattacks are anonymous and transnational, and it is hard to trace the origin of attacks, so I don’t know how the findings of the report are credible,” Mr. Hong said. WSJ

At the same time, Mr. Hong said China has been a frequent victim of cyberattacks, and he added that the U.S. has been the top source of such attacks. China has suffered virus attacks, and Chinese personal computers have come under control by foreign Internet addresses, he said. WSJ
