Chinese hackers attack the U.S. infrastructure. The aggression continues
Hackers are in a committee with the Chinese government. Tensions between the two great world powers continue. Taiwan's status and the upcoming 2024 presidential elections are in the background.
FBI Director Christopher Wray informed on Wednesday about disturbing Chinese attacks on the critical U.S. infrastructure. He also added that it was not only about military targets, but civil as well.

The political situation is obviously very tense. Taiwan, Ukraine War, Middle East humanitarian crisis and terrorism.
It is still hard to tell how dangerous the attacks are. The Chinese government is very good in keeping the information about their resources in silence.
The potential shutdown of TikTok is also important context. The U.S. government is trying their best to limit Chinese influence on American public opinion.
Although the information about the targetting of targeting critical infrustructure and civil objects, it is unclear what the real aim of the attack was.
