Pentagon report calls out China on cyberattacks, pushes for dialogue

The Pentagon has directly asserted for the first time that China’s government and military have conducted computer-based attacks against the United States, according to the Huffington Post.

A Pentagon report said that China is using its cyber capabilities to collect intelligence against U.S. diplomatic, economic and defense programs, and warned that the skills necessary to hack this sort of information are on par with those needed to conduct cyber-warfare.

The report aims to call out China for these cyberattacks, and to press for a more open dialogue with Beijing on the problem, the Huffington Post reported.
