U.S. Readies Charges Against Chinese Hackers

The Wall Street Journal, citing "people familiar with the matter," claims that prosecutors will unseal criminal charges against Chinese hackers as soon as next week.

U.S. officials have described the hacking campaign as one of the most audacious and damaging orchestrated by China to date, intended to steal intellectual property and support Beijing’s espionage goals. The hacks have allowed intruders potential access to scores of American companies and government agencies that rely on the service providers for a wide range of digital tasks, such as the remote management of technology infrastructure or cloud storage.
