Tension has intensified between China and US governments as new reports exclusively reveal that China tried to hack American companies. CrowdStrike, a security firm in the United States informed The White House in Washington DC that China tried to hack American companies but remained unwilling to disclose the identity of targeted corporations.
These hackers have been linked to the government of China. Aware of the illegality of their action, they went ahead and attempted to intrude into at least seven companies in the United States. This comes barely three weeks after Washington and Beijing made an agreement to avoid spying on each other for commercial purposes. This is according to a famous security firm in the United States, CrowdStrike. The security firm stated that the software it placed at five US and two pharmaceutical companies managed to detect and rebuff the attacks that began on September 26 this year.
