New Delhi, Apr 10 (ANI): China has denied hacking into America’s electrical grid, as media reports claimed that Chinese cyber-spies penetrated the US electrical grid.

“The intrusion doesn’t exist at all,” Xinhua quoted Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu, as saying.

Several international news agencies reported that cyber-spies penetrated the US electrical grid, leaving behind software programs that could be used to disrupt the system.

The articles said the spies came from China, Russia and other countries.

Jiang Yu denied China had any involvement with mapping or breaking in to America’s infrastructure.

“I have also noticed that the US White House had denied the media reports. We hope that the concerned media will prudently deal with some groundless remarks, especially those concerning accusations against China,” Jiang added. (ANI)
