China has declared a cyber war: NATO

“We’re now getting regular warnings from the office for internal security,” they said, adding that the number of attacks had increased significantly over the past 12 months. China, they said, is among the most active players.

In the US, an official report released on Friday said the number of attacks on Congress and other government agencies had risen exponentially in the past year to an estimated 1.6 billion every month.

The Chinese cyber-penetration of key offices in both NATO and the EU has led to restrictions in the normal flow of intelligence because there are concerns that secret intelligence reports might be vulnerable.

Sources at the Office for Cyber Security at the Cabinet Office in London, set up last year, said there were two forms of attack -- those focusing on disrupting computer systems and others involving “fishing trips” for sensitive information.
