China Attempting To ‘Compromise Critical Infrastructure’ In Recent Cyberattacks

via Bloomberg Television on Youtube

Hackers affiliated with China’s military have conducted cyber attacks on critical U.S. systems, with a focus on pre-positioning themselves to disrupt infrastructure in the event of a conflict.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is monitoring and addressing these threats.

The increased cyber activity coincides with heightened tensions between the U.S. and China, particularly over China’s actions in the Indo-Pacific region, including Taiwan.

“It is very clear that Chinese attempts to compromise critical infrastructure are in part to pre-position themselves to be able to disrupt or destroy that critical infrastructure in the event of a conflict, to either prevent the United States from being able to project power into Asia or to cause societal chaos inside the United States — to affect our decision-making around a crisis,” CISA executive director Brandon Wales said.

“That is a significant change from Chinese cyber activity from seven to 10 years ago that was focused primarily on political and economic espionage.”

“You’re trying to build tunnels into your enemies’ infrastructure that you can later use to attack,” China security studies fellow Joe McReynolds said.

“Until then you lie in wait, carry out reconnaissance, figure out if you can move into industrial control systems or more critical companies or targets upstream.”

“And one day, if you get the order from on high, you switch from reconnaissance to attack.”

President Biden has sought to ease tensions through a summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
