US Navy hit by Chinese hacking campaign, raising fears of wider plan, report says

“An alleged campaign by Chinese state-sponsored hackers on targets in the U.S. and Guam has raised fears that Beijing is preparing to disrupt communications in the Pacific in the event of a conflict.“

“The hacking campaign was first identified by Microsoft Corp. on Wednesday and quickly confirmed by authorities in the U.S., U.K. and other allied nations. Microsoft said the hacking group, which it dubbed Volt Typhoon, breached government, communications, manufacturing and IT organizations in the U.S. and Guam, a crucial military post in the western Pacific Ocean.“

“While the identities of most of the hacking victims remains unknown, U.S. Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro told CNBC on Thursday that the Navy was impacted by the intrusions. The extent of the breach wasn’t immediately known“
