The new threat from China
When hacking is used for military & political reasons…
The emerging superpower and the growing threat to superpowers has now emerged as the leader in cyber warfare too. China is the only country which has been indicted of using hacking for political and military purpose. Be it for battlefield preparations or developing hacking networks, China’s leap into this century’s cyber warfare technology has created a serious and horrifying problem for the world.
Among almost 120 countries working on cyber warfare, China tops the chart. Chinese hackers even hit a secure pentagon system named NIPRNet, which is used to call US forces in emergency. This eventually helped China to force Taiwan to surrender by keeping US forces at bay. However, Chinese attacks are not only confined to the Pentagon but also to German federal ministries and British government offices, which are much worried about Chinese hacking. As per the German officials, 60% of the cyber attacks in their system come from China alone. Interestingly, China claims that perpetrators should essentially carry on with this holy work. Ever wondered what would happen if China starts controlling all the networks of the world?
