China denies hacking charge

June 13, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

China denied accusations by Reps. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.) and Christopher H. Smith (R-N.J.) that it had hacked into their computers, saying it wasn't capable of such cyber-crime.

"Is there any evidence? . . . Do we have such advanced technology? Even I don't believe it," Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said.

Wolf and Smith said Wednesday that their office computers had been hacked into by people working from China. Both are critics of China's human rights record.
