The Chinese authorities claim that the country regularly becomes a victim of hacker attacks

China will begin checking computer systems that are used in public institutions in the country to protect confidential data against the background of cyber-espionage charges from the United States, Xinhua news agency reported today with reference to the information bureau of the PRC State Council.

According to the agency, technologies that are important for national security and public interests will be tested.

According to the information bureau of the PRC State Council, the governments of some countries and companies "take advantage of technology monopolies to collect confidential data on a large scale" on the Chinese government, firms and various organizations in the country.

The US Department of Justice on Monday indicted five Chinese military personnel for economic cyber espionage. The Chinese military is accused of stealing trade secrets of six American firms operating in the fields of nuclear, solar energy and metallurgy. The Chinese Foreign Ministry, in turn, said that the US accusations "are invented and will harm China-US relations and mutual trust between countries." The PRC authorities also recalled that the country has repeatedly rejected the attacks of the American authorities. In addition, the ministry demanded that the United States "immediately correct the mistake."

The US government said it would consider the possibility of imposing trade sanctions against China, if it is confirmed that cyber attacks on US enterprises and institutions are carried out with the official support of Beijing. The Chinese authorities claim that the country regularly falls victim to hacker attacks, with some traces of such attacks leading to the United States.

Later, the PRC Ministry of Defense condemned the United States for "hypocrisy and double standards" regarding cybersecurity issues.
