This Week's Program:
President Obama says the US and China have come to a "common understanding" to not conduct or support cyber espionage and intellectual property theft. The announcement came during talks between Mr. Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Washington. According to various reports, China is “the leading suspect” in the massive theft of sensitive US government records. On this week’s HashtagVOA, we take a closer at hacking, who is behind it, and what can be done to control the damage.
