22926422 submission Submission + - McAfee Denied Accusing China in Cyberwar (xinhuanet.com) Submitted by hackingbear on Friday August 05, 2011 @12:29PM hackingbear writes: In an interview with Chinese official Xinhua news agency,McAfee said no direct evidence suggests a particular nation such as China is behind Operation Shady RAT, a five-year cyber campaign discovered by McAfee. Alperovitch told Xinhua that they "don't have direct evidence that conclusively points to a particular nation state" behind the scheme. So the same online security industry that has propagated Chinese cyber threats in front of Western media denies they made such suggestion in China, another of their major market. Is there really a cyberwar going on? Or is it really a marketing campaign aim to grab money from taxpayers around the world?
