China may have tried to hack U.S. companies just weeks after Chinese President Xi Jinping made an agreement with President Barack Obama not to conduct that kind of cyberwarfare. The accusations come from U.S. cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike. (Video via The White House)
In a blog post, the firm wrote that over the last three weeks it had "detected and prevented a number of intrusions into our customers' systems from actors we have affiliated with the Chinese government."
The company said some of the hacks were on technological and pharmaceutical companies and were likely an attempt to steal trade secrets and intellectual property. (Video via The White House)
