Beijing on Tuesday denied allegations that the Chinese government and military are behind cyberattacks against US websites.
"The Chinese army has never supported any hackings," the Ministry of National Defense said in a statement. Such accusations are unprofessional and false, it added.
The ministry's remarks came in response to a report released by Internet security firm Mandiant on Monday that claimed that China's army controls some of the most prolific hackers in the world, and that a host of cyberattacks was traced to a building in Shanghai.
