These attacks according to state news agency Xinhua take over Chinese computers and use them to target Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine.

“Monitoring by the CNCERT/CC found that since late February, China’s internet has continuously faced cyberattacks from abroad. These overseas groups attacked by taking control of computers in the country to carry out cyberattacks on Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. After analysis, most of the addresses for these attacks came from the United States,” Xinhua quoted CNCERT/CC.
