UK warns of Chinese global cyber attacks

Following announcements by the US Department of Justice and Malaysian law enforcement today (Wednesday 16 September) of criminal charges against Chinese nationals and arrests of Malaysian nationals relating to malicious cyber attacks, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

Today we have another example of the Chinese using malicious cyber activity for criminal ends. We condemn the attempted attacks against governments and businesses. This kind of opportunistic and reckless behaviour in cyberspace is wholly unacceptable.

The UK will continue to counter those conducting such cyber attacks, and work with our allies to hold perpetrators to account.
