China Defense Ministry: Report on Chinese State-Sponsored Hacking Lacks "Technical Proof"

The Chinese Ministry of Defense released a statement on its website Wednesday arguing that the new report, released by US security firm Mandiant, provides thin support for its assertion that Chinese state forces were behind online attacks against some 150 victims, mostly US-based sites, writes Reuters.
