China says it did not hack U.S. satellites
U.S. commission had claimed that China may have been responsible for hacking incidents on U.S. environment-monitoring satellites, however China denies all these claims.
According to the draft report to Congress, at least two U.S. environment-monitoring satellites were interfered with four or more times in 2007 and 2008 via a ground station in Norway, and China’s military is a prime suspect.
The event had been traced to China as per the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.
Hong Lei,Foreign Ministry spokesman said:
“This report is untrue and has ulterior motives. It’s not worth a comment.“
He also reiterated China’s stance that it:
“is also a victim of hacking attacks and will oppose any form of cyber crime, including hacking.”
