I still think the China attack trope is BS. Try US botnets installed on
Chinese computers that not only make it look like China is attacking but
glean the data obtained for US intel agencies.

Ditto Russia, although I don't see that Russia is even being pegged as a
big cyber-attacker.

I DO BELIEVE they hack to extract data about the US government from .gov
and .mil addresses but if there are malicious attacks they're in the
Anonymous league of things... Unlike the attack on Protonmail a while
back which started with a criminal attack followed by a MASSIVE attack
that only a government with major capabilities could do.

Not seen anything like that directed against US government servers, nor
do I believe the Chnese/Russian government is particularly interested in
US government employee info or our credit card numbers.
