According to a report published by the NUKIB Czech National Cyber and Information Security Agency (NUKIB), China carried out a major cyber attack on a key government institution in the Czech Republic last year.
The report issued by the NUKIB agency states that the attack “was almost certainly carried out by a state actor or a related group,” and “a Chinese actor” is the main suspect.
In August, 2019, a parliamentary committee in the Czech Republic revealed that the National Cyber and Information Security Agency blamed a foreign state for a cyber attack that targeted the Czech Foreign Ministry.
The committee did not reveal the name of the state allegedly involved in the attack. A government source told Reuters that Czech authorities suspected the attacks originated from Russia. The Czech experts discovered the security breach early January 2017.
Czech intelligence warns of cyber attacks launched by both China and Russia threat actors.
“The Czech cabinet is due to discuss the findings on Monday.” reported the AFP press. “NUKIB spokesman Radek Holy told AFP the watchdog would not make the report public until then.”
