FBI Says Chinese Hackers Are Targeting U.S Vaccine Research



U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) on Wednesday said that China-linked hackers were targeting U.S. research organisations to steal data on vaccines and treatments for the new coronavirus.

The FBI and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) said health care, pharmaceutical and research institutions working on a pandemic response should all be aware they were the prime targets of this activity.

The agencies advised the health institutions to take the necessary steps in protecting their systems.

“China’s efforts to target these sectors pose a significant threat to our nation’s response to COVID-19,’’ the agencies said.


The potential theft of this information “jeopardises the delivery of secure, effective, and efficient treatment options.”

According to the advisory, organisations should partner with CISA to help protect their efforts, while those suspecting suspicious activity should alert the FBI.

“More details on the threat will be released in the coming days,’’ the agencies said.

The warning is the latest in a series of efforts by President Donald Trump’s administration to blame China for being the source of the pandemic and exploiting its aftermath.
