China has accused the United States of having conducted terrorist activities for years hacking to the detriment of the Chinese communications electronics giant Huawei Technologies. China's Ministry of State Security posted a message on its profile today WeChat entitled “Revelations on the despicable methods used by US intelligence agencies for cyber espionage and theft”, in which he explicitly accuses the United States of having conducted cyber espionage activities against the Chinese technological giant for years.

“In 2009, the Office of Network Cyber ​​Operations (under the US National Security Agency, NSA) undertook server infiltration activities at Huawei headquarters, and has continued to conduct such surveillance activities,” he said. accused the ministry. China's National Computer Virus Emergency Response Center appears to have uncovered US intelligence activities against Huawei as part of its investigation into a cyber attack suffered last year by the Northwestern Polytechnical University in Xi'an. The Chinese agency allegedly extracted the "Second Date" spyware from the university's networks, which according to Beijing "was developed by the US National Security Agency, which has infiltrated thousands of networks in numerous countries around the world".

According to the ministry, the United States used the same computer intrusion program for attacks against Huawei, and to "gain control of tens of thousands of devices and steal a substantial amount of highly valuable data." Over the past two months, Chinese state media such as CCTV broadcaster and Xinhua news agency have repeatedly referred to the United States as the "true hacker empire" in reference to the cyberattack. against Xi'an Polytechnic.

Last week the spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Mao Ning, referred to press rumors regarding Beijing's discovery of alleged data security flaws ("backdoors") that could be used by the United States to spy on Apple iPhone users. China has revised the anti-espionage law in recent months in an attempt to more effectively counter the cyber espionage activities suffered by the country, and according to the "Nikkei" newspaper Beijing has recommended that central government and local administration personnel not use iPhones and other electronic devices manufactured by Apple.
