China: Hacking U.S. Government Was Criminal, Not State-Sponsored

China's Xinhua Says U.S. OPM Hack Was Not State-Sponsored

Paul Karsten and Mark Hosenball | December 2, 2015

China's official Xinhua news agency said on Wednesday an investigation into a massive U.S. computer breach last year that compromised data on more than 22 million federal workers found that the hacking attack was criminal, not state-sponsored.
In an article about a meeting in Washington between top U.S. and Chinese officials on cyber security issues, Xinhua said the breach at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) was among the cases discussed.
The report did not give details of who conducted the investigation or whether both U.S. and Chinese officials agreed with the conclusion.
