Whoops wrong button. That one resets to reality.

More than 90% of global cyber-attacks on financial or government agencies come from China. China is constantly probing the security measures of other countries.

if that’s the case, will Suga’s recent attempt to buddy up and play nice with Xi stop it then?

Could this happen more than once in any other developed country? The last time it happened, they discovered that the backup server was literally located beside the host server

Obviously an attack by a rogue state - choose one from China, North Korea, Russia.

I am all for fighting China, but this is really based on nothing else than propaganda. All governments are pretty active in the area, as they should be...

Hands up all who think all our personal data, finances and online activity should be stored on the MY NUMBER server, probably with a password “my number” or “1234”?

Was it.

That could make complete sense where financial market information is concerned, due to the difference in latency that you'd get if the backup were hundreds of kms away.

You definitely want to run your McDonald's type operations with that sort of redundancy, but the extra latency could matter where a level playing field for financial markets transactions is concerned.

It is impossible to succeed the position of Hong Kong.

Indeed, all govts do spy on each other. Everything from information at embassy parties to bugging diplomats hotel rooms. However a malicious cyber attack that cripples economic or lifeline infrastructure is China’s area of expertise.

Not North Korea, Russia, USA, Iran, Israel, UK, etc.

My money is on an enemy of Japan that did this through sophisticated cyber-warfare - either North Korea or PRC. I hope Japan investigates the source thoroughly.

and they are taking about cashless.. a JOKE.

Yes, such things happen when the digital-cho comes long before education-cho and analog-cho. lol

Um, the issue is hardware not software. It’s not a cyber attack.

Yes it can, but it happens on airplanes, They were call the 737 max.
