The US, Britain, the EU and Nato have accused China of sponsoring a massive cyberattack on the Microsoft Exchange email server discovered in early 2021. The US State Department said on July 19, 2021, that “cyber actors” had worked with China’s Ministry of State Security in the operation that Microsoft publicly disclosed in March after the company reportedly learned about the intrusion in January. Washington says the cyberespionage “indiscriminately compromised thousands of computers and networks, mostly belonging to private sector victims”.

Can a government make accusations without evidence? Like what US did to Iraq in 2003… So governments can unite to start the invasion or so called "fight back"??? 🤔

Oh really, no early access to Windows 11? We will get it later, (hackers) making new key generator now. Haha.

Jag Singh says:

China is a peace love country and focuses its own development, but some US officials and news media are spreading hatred against it and painting it as evil for justifying an excuse to start a fight.

This so boredom cause like always the western countries always blame china but if this the case then show prove not speech. Since the cold War is over these western countries hide behind there so call righteous. They always think they defender of freedom. These western countries are nothing but empire..they have started more wars then any countries . How many time china been in war, who withdraw their troops in the middle east. Who started that war I wonder.

The Ming Warrior says:

Even if this was true, doesn't discourage the fact that Microsoft steals and sells information from people's accounts anyway to US goverment and companies
