The US, Britain, the EU and Nato have accused China of sponsoring a massive cyberattack on the Microsoft Exchange email server discovered in early 2021. The US State Department said on July 19, 2021, that “cyber actors” had worked with China’s Ministry of State Security in the operation that Microsoft publicly disclosed in March after the company reportedly learned about the intrusion in January. Washington says the cyberespionage “indiscriminately compromised thousands of computers and networks, mostly belonging to private sector victims”.
