On June 13, 2008 the largest Chinese hacker website, Hackbase.com, commented on U.S. lawmakers’ announcement that according to FBI, their Congressional computers were hacked by source inside China. Titled “U.S. Congressmen Slanders Chinese Hackers for Hacking Congressional Computers for Two Years,” the Hackbase article states that it is normal that U.S. official websites are hacked, quoting U.S. Pentagon testimony at a Congressional hearing last month. The article further states that the true purpose of the lawmakers’ announcement is anti-China.
Earlier on June 12 spokesman of China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs denied statement by the two U.S. lawmakers that it hacked into congressional computers, saying that as a developing country it is not capable of sophisticated cyber-crime.
