China slams US accusation of hacking

China has criticised US intelligence agency`s accusations of hacking by Chinese firms, saying it also falls victim to cyber crime.



Beijing: China has criticised US intelligence agency`s accusations of hacking by Chinese firms, saying it also falls victim to cyber crime, Xinhua reported.

On Wednesday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei was asked during a press conference about accusations from an unspecified US source that Chinese firms had used hacking to steal commercial secrets.

Hong said China has responded to hacking-related issues on many occasions, and that it is "grossly irresponsible" to allege that China steals information and conducts hacking online without evidence and investigation.
"China also falls victim to hacking," the spokesperson said while noting that cyberspace security was an international issue and China intends cooperation with the global community to safeguard online security together.
