Vương quốc Anh cáo buộc Trung Quốc tấn công mạng nhắm vào dữ liệu cử tri và nhà lập pháp

chính phủ Anh tin rằng Trung Quốc giám sát hai chiến dịch hack riêng biệt, trong đó có chiến dịch thu thập thông tin từ 40 triệu cử tri

The British government on Monday accused China of cyberattacks (tấn công mạng) that compromised the voting records of tens of millions of people, a sharp rebuke (quở trách gay gắt) that underlined the hardening of Britain’s stance toward China since its leaders heralded a “golden era” in British-Chinese relations nearly a decade ago.

The deputy prime minister, Oliver Dowden announced sanctions against two individuals and one company linked to a state-affiliated group (nhóm trực thuộc nhà nước) implicated in the attacks, which he said targeted both an elections watchdog and lawmakers. The Foreign Office summoned China’s ambassador to Britain for a formal diplomatic dressing down (ngoại giao trang trọng).

In September, the police arrested a 28-year-old British researcher in Parliament on suspicion of working for the Chinese government. The man, who denied being a spy, worked with prominent lawmakers, including Tom Tugendhat, who is now security minister in the government, on China policy, raising fears of possible security breaches.

The arrest of the researcher, which was believed to be unrelated to the cyberattacks, widened a rift within the governing Conservative Party over how London should engage with an increasingly assertive Beijing.

The current foreign secretary, David Cameron, was prime minister during the period when Britain cultivated closer commercial ties with China. In a news conference with President Xi Jinping in 2015, he hailed the dawn of a “golden era in relations between Britain and China.”
