The Pentagon has accused China’s army of carrying out cyber-attacks. State-sponsored hackers have renewed attacks on the US after a three-month hiatus, the New York Times reports. In February, Unit 61398 of the Chinese army was named as the source of many cyber-attacks on American companies and federal agencies. The publicity drew denials from the Chinese government, but also prompted the number of attacks launched from China to slow to a trickle. Now, the newspaper reports, the unit has resumed attacks on US companies. Cyber-defence company Mandiant told the New York Times the unit, which is believed to operate out of a heavily guarded building in the suburbs of Shanghai, had recently stepped up its activity. It declined to name which agencies and businesses had been attacked.
