hypnosec writes: American and Chinese cyber-relations are on the frosty side, when it comes to accusations of hacking email accounts, industrial espionage, web censorship, Google and a range of other issues. In fact, the US (and UK) has been increasing pressure on China recently, claiming that the country is potentially responsible for the cyber-theft of billions — in terms of intellectual property from private companies, and government departments. China, for its part, denies involvement in such action, and says that it's a victim of cyber-attacks just as much as any other nation. However, according to reports, the two nations have at least put some of their differences aside, to organize two test cyber-war exercises. These were conducted with the express aim of defusing some of the building tension, between the two nations.
