Microsoft says it was hit by Chinese hackers, but Biden administration won’t point finger | Washington Examiner

Microsoft and cybersecurity experts believe the massive hack against the Microsoft Exchange Server this year was conducted by a Chinese hacker group, but the Biden administration has yet to point the finger.President Joe Biden signed a cybersecurity executive order earlier this month, naming three recent prominent cyberattacks — SolarWinds, Colonial Pipeline, and Microsoft — with a White House fact sheet saying those “recent cybersecurity incidents … are a sobering reminder that U.S. public and private sector entities increasingly face sophisticated malicious cyber activity from both nation-state actors and cyber criminals.” The United States has said Russian intelligence is behind the SolarWinds hack and that a Russian hacker gang is behind the Colonial Pipeline attack, but it has not publicly attributed the Microsoft hack to anyone.
