Microsoft hacks: Australia, US allies accuse China of cyber attacks

No wonder Dutton is saber-rattling like the organ grinder’s monkey.

The United States and a coalition of allies have accused China of a global cyber hacking campaign that employed contract hackers, specifically attributing a large Microsoft attack disclosed earlier this year to actors working on the country’s behalf. Opening a new area of tensions with China, the United States is joined by NATO, the European Union, the United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, New Zealand and Canada to level the allegations.
