US and China agree not to hack each other




The Presidents of the United States and China have been talking about digital warfare between the two countries. Arrangements have been made to ensure that both countries no longer with hacking attacks bombard each other.

During a press conference, the presidents Barack Obama and Xi Jinping announced that an agreement is that both countries will abide by. Thus, among others agreed that no digital espionage for economic purposes is performed. However, many details still missing: a group of experts will consult together to work out the arrangements further. That group will end this year and will then run twice a year to discuss, as reported Reuters.

The United States and China arguing for some time about cyber attacks that would take place over and over again. So put the Americans that the communist country hackers regularly with companies late break in and steal trade secrets. The US government systems would suffer. Such incidents should therefore no longer appear. Incidentally, did China and Russia earlier this year similar agreements on mutual hack attempts.

Recently, the United States stated that suspected Chinese hackers is the data of former and current government employees have stolen. A total of more than twenty million people the information stolen. Then the Americans would again seek revenge, as suggested government sources.
