According to a report released Monday by the U.S. Depart­ment of Defense, China is alleged to be directly respon­sible for cyber­at­tacks against the U.S.

The report, which eval­u­ated China’s mil­i­tary capa­bil­i­ties, found that, “numerous com­puter sys­tems around the world, including those owned by the U.S. gov­ern­ment, con­tinued to be tar­geted for intru­sions, some of which appear to be attrib­ut­able directly to the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment and mil­i­tary. These intru­sions were focused on exfil­trating information.”

The infor­ma­tion could be valu­able to China for defense and tech­nology indus­tries, U.S. policy makers in China and for mil­i­tary planning.
