Abstract: A large proportion of China-originated cyberattacks are allegedly aimed at extracting high-value intellectual property such as trade secrets. Senior government officials from China and the US have made frequent verbal and written allegations that their countries are victimized by cyberattacks and that their counterparts in the other country don't cooperate in fighting cybercrimes. This paper sheds light into this cyber Cold war by examining Western and Chinese allegations and counter-allegations related to cyberattacks and cyberwarfare.
