World against the CCP: Pompeo Criticized CCP for Attempting to Steal U.S. Vaccine

On May 13, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security issued a warning that Chinese hackers and spies were using the coronavirus pandemic as a cover to shield their clandestine cyberattacks. The hackers attempted to steal research on the coronavirus, including the vaccine, the treatment, testing, and public health information.

On May 14, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo denounced China for its hacking activities. “The United States condemns attempts by cyber actors and non-traditional collectors affiliated with the People’s Republic of China to steal US intellectual property and data related to COVID-19 research. The United States calls on the PRC to cease this malicious activity.”
