China says US hacking charges ‘fabricated out of thin air’


BEIJING: Beijing on Thursday strongly denied a US congressional panel’s claim that Chinese government-linked hackers had launched dozens of cyberattacks on American defense contractors, saying the charges were “fabricated out of thin air.” The denial came a day after a Senate panel released a study finding that hackers had gained access to systems run by companies doing contract work for the US Transportation Command at least 50 times between 2012 and 2013, potentially compromising military operations.
