China confirms existence of elite cyber warfare outfit
Beijing, May 27 (ANI): Today, cyber-war is very much a reality, and hina has set up a specialized online "Blue Army" unit that it claims will protect the People's Liberation Army from outside attacks.
At a rare briefing, China's defense ministry spokesman, Geng Yansheng, announced that the 30-strong team was formed to improve the military's security, the Beijing News reported Thursday.
When a reporter asked if the Blue Army was set up in order to launch cyber attacks on other countries, Geng said that internet security was an international issue that impacted not only society but also the military field, adding that China was also a victim of cyber attacks and that the country's network security was currently relatively weak.
The online unit, organized under the Guangdong Military Command, is believed to have existed for at least two years before Geng's acknowledgment. (ANI)
