CHINESE HACKERS LIKE A ‘DRUNK BURGLAR’

In an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Comey said Chinese hackers target the intellectual property of U.S. companies in China every day. FBI Director James Comey compared Chinese hackers to a “drunk burglar” who steals with reckless abandon, even as they cost the U.S. economy billions of dollars every year. The Justice Department earlier this year announced a 31-count indictment against Chinese hackers accused of breaking into computer networks at steel companies and the manufacturers of solar and nuclear technology, with the goal of gaining a competitive advantage.

  • In the CBS interview, Comey also discussed the U.S. fight against terrorism.
  • China has denied the allegations.
  • Comey said the U.S. believes there are about a dozen Americans fighting alongside extremist groups in Syria.
