    The Conversation - 09/14/2015

    The war of words between China, Russia and the US has escalated recently with the White House declaring its intention to apply sanctions in response to what the US sees as state-sponsored cyberattacks from the east.

    So far in 2015, Russia been implicated in hacks of the IRS, the the White House, the Joint Chiefs, and the State Department.

    China has been named the culprit for the hack of the Office of Personnel Management, which stole the personal records of nearly 21m US citizens. The two countries are now reportedly working together in the difficult work of deciphering the raw data from these hacks.
