Chinese media rejects talks of cyber attacks

BEIJING - A state newspaper in China is rejecting suggestions that the Beijing government might be behind a global cyber attack over the past five years targeting more than 70 government entities, nonprofit groups and corporations.

The ruling Communist Party flagship People's Daily says it's "irresponsible" to link China with Internet hacking attacks.

Earlier this week, the computer security firm McAfee said that China is the likely culprit behind attacks against a road range of organizations, including the United Nations, the International Olympic Committee and companies mostly in the United States.

The Chinese government itself has not officially commented.
