"Internet Threat from China" Groundless

The Chinese Foreign Ministry has released a new statement, rejecting accusations Chinese hackers have attacked computers belonging to European leaders last year.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei.

"American computer security firms have always been keen to stir up the so-called "Internet threat from China", but they can't provide any hard evidence, the so-called evidence they listed are generally questioned by internet experts. They are neither professional nor responsible. They use some stories out of nowhere to distract people to obtain attention. It does no good for international cooperation in maintaining internet safety."

The comments come as American computer security firm FireEye alleges the computers of five European foreign ministries were attacked by Chinese hackers during the G20 summit last September.
