[Nikkei Asia/ Japan] US and allies accuse China of cyberattacks in new stage of tensions

  • The U.S., Japan, Australia, New Zealand, the European Union and NATO on Monday accused China of a “pattern of malicious cyber activity,” linking Beijing to an attack on Microsoft Exchange email servers discovered in March.
  • The coordinated response marks a new phase in U.S.-China tensions, with Washington widening its efforts to isolate Beijing over alleged bad behavior.
  • Beyond the Microsoft incident, the Australian government announced in June of last year that the country had been hit by a wave of cyberattacks from a “state-based” actor, generally believed to be China.
