US may impose sanctions against China due to hacker attacks. This is reported by The Washington Post.
This possibility was announced by The Washington Post. Attackers often target trade secrets, namely the secrets of US energy companies. The possibility of imposing sanctions is something of a warning signal to Beijing. On the other hand, the White House makes it clear to American business that it is on its side. So far, the final decision on the imposition of sanctions has not been made. The Americans will consider this issue within two weeks.
China has consistently denied this kind of accusation. Moreover, the PRC authorities place an emphasis on countering cyber threats with the efforts of the entire Earth (the Celestial Empire itself often acts as a victim of hacker attacks). It is reported that all these issues will be discussed during the September meeting of Chinese President Xi Jinping with US President Barack Obama.
Earlier, we will remind, the Chinese hackers were accused of hacking the database of American Airlines, as well as the Saber reservation system. What information was stolen was not reported. The hack was the largest incident of its kind in the US travel industry in its entire history.
