Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) is investigating the news report issued by local online news portal, The Malaysian Insider, at around 3:00 pm yesterday with the headline stating “Malaysia Uses Spyware against Own Citizens, NYT Reports”.
MCMC would like to state that this report is speculative and ill- researched.
“China’s economic espionage has reached an intolerable level and I believe that the United States and our allies in Europe and Asia have an obligation to confront Beijing and demand that they put a stop to this piracy.
Beijing is waging a massive trade war on us all, and we should band together to pressure them to stop. Combined, the United States and our allies in Europe and Asia have significant diplomatic and economic leverage over China, and we should use this to our advantage to put an end to this scourge.”1
— U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, October, 2011
“It is unprofessional and groundless to accuse the Chinese military of launching cyber attacks without any conclusive evidence.”2
— Chinese Defense Ministry, January, 2013
