The data claimed that from March 19 to May 18 of this year, 2,077 Trojan horse networks or botnet services in the US directly controlled 1.18 million host computers in China.According to the report, the US has been spying on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs extensively for years.

In May, the US Justice Department indicted five members of the Chinese military for stealing trade secrets and cyberespionage, marking the first time the US government has publicly accused foreign employees of hacking into American firms.China responded by summoning the American ambassador in Beijing to condemn the accusations, increased security checks for computer hardware and services operating in China and banned Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system.
