New Allegations of Chinese Attacks on German Systems

Hans Elmar Remberg, vice president of the German Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the country's domestic intelligence agency, recently reiterated Germany's concerns that Chinese "hackers" backed by the Chinese government were attacking German computers according to Deutsche Welle.
"Remberg told a conference on industrial espionage in Berlin on Monday that the nature and frequency of the attacks on German companies pointed to a concerted targeting by Chinese hackers backed by the state.

"In our view, state Chinese interests stand behind these digital attacks," said Remberg. "Supporting this view is the intensity, structure and scope of the attacks, and above all the targets, which include [German] authorities and companies."
