Washington:

The US Department of Justice on Wednesday announced charges against five Chinese and two Malaysians who carried out a global hacking operation for at least six years to steal identity and video game technology and spy on Hong Kong activists.

The operation, long known to computer security experts, was not run by the Chinese government, but a hacker claimed that he was protected by Chinese security services according to the allegations.

Acting US Attorney Michael Sherwin said in a statement, “Some of these criminal actors believed that their cooperation with the PRC gave them a free license to hack and steal worldwide.”
