US accusations harmful to build safe cyber world

(People's Daily Online)

11:05, November 21, 2012

The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Committee affiliated to U.S. Congress issued its annual report on Nov. 14, declaring that China has become the most threatening country in the cyber world. This is not the first irresponsible report issued by the Committee.

China is opposed to any form of hacker attacks and has set up relevant laws to prohibit it.

With the rapid development of Internet in China in recent years, China has suffered more and more attacks from hackers overseas.

According to sample monitoring of National Computer Network Emergency Response Technical Team Coordination Center of China (CNCERT), about 47,000 foreign IP addresses as Trojan or botnet control server had broken into nearly 8.9 million computers in China in 2011.

In the foreign attacks suffered by China network, the malicious IP addresses from the United States are the most serious threat.

The CNCERT found through survey that about 9,500 U.S. IPs had controlled nearly 8.8 million computers of China in 2011 and 72 percent of IPs pretending to be Chinese banks were from the United States.

Although these data showed the conditions of U.S. cyber-attacks suffered by China from a technological point of view, China never made any simple assumptions and accusations to the source of attacks.
