How will China face hacking accusations? | Inside Story
Al Jazeera, 21 Jul 2021
It was a unified condemnation of China on cyberattacks.
The United States, the European Union, NATO and other world powers all said Beijing was responsible for an attack on Microsoft servers earlier this year.
But stopped short of announcing punishment measures for the alleged cyber activities.
Around a quarter of a million computers are said to have been compromised in March, affecting at least 30,000 organisations worldwide.
Nations including Canada, New Zealand, Austrlalia and Japan said Chinese state-linked hacking groups were behind the exploitation.
Beijing says the accusation is groundless.
So, what's the fallout from this row?
