A new U.S. intelligence assessment warns the United States is the target of a massive, sustained cyber-espionage campaign that threatens U.S. economic competitiveness. Citing unnamed U.S. officials familiar with the National Intelligence Estimate, The Washington Post reports (Monday) the most aggressive efforts to penetrate computer systems of American businesses and institutions originate in China, especially commercial targets linked to military technology. Brad Glosserman, executive director of the Hawaii-based Pacific Forum security think tank, tells VOA's Victor Beattie it is almost impossible to determine whether such cyber-attacks are state-sponsored.
