Accusations follow condemnation by US and allies of global cyberattacks they say were orchestrated by Beijing

Three cases of alleged US cyberattacks against Chinese universities and sensitive facilities outlined by Global Times website

China has fleshed out its accusation that the US was behind a number of hacks into the networks of Chinese universities and sensitive government facilities, after Washington and its allies 

The news website of the Global Times, a newspaper affiliated with the People’s Daily, did not specify where its information was from, but outlined three cases of “malicious cyber activities” between August and October last year which allegedly targeted the servers of sensitive facilities to prime them for later intrusion and infiltration opportunities.

In October, a US hacker group allegedly attacked 2,426 servers in China, most at government and party facilities, as well as a power train company, a steel plant and some universities, according to the report.
