China setting up data traps says UK

UK’s top intelligence agency MI6 has made an astonishing revelation yesterday, saying that the Chinese intelligence has set up data and dept traps to conquer the entire world by conducting espionage and indulging in extortion tactics later.

Richard Moore, the MI6 boss, asserted the statement by stating that Chinese government was providing secret funding to back up financially weak nations in order to keep them in loop of conducting a large scale espionage and cyber attacks.

Speaking the same in an interview on Radio 4, Mr. Moore said that the Xi Jinping led nation was conducting espionage through its home-made products like CCTV equipment, smart phones, IoT devices that are being used on a global note.

Divulging more about the debt traps set up by China, MI6 Chief stated Beijing was pressurizing Uganda into surrendering its port, if it fails to pay a $200 million loan given sometime back.

Moore reiterated the fact that Russia and China are two powerful nations that are trying to influence and dominate West by conducting spying and releasing loans to developing nations of Africa, Asia and Middle East.

Use of Artificial Intelligence technology is also adding advantage to their capabilities as it is allowing them to harvest data from billions of devices operating across the west.

Does that mean buying a Chinese product is not a safe decision any more…?

“It is hard to estimate their tech prowess over the world and can increment as a serious threat to global stability,” said Richard Moore.

Note- MI6 is a century old UK’s Secret Intelligence Service tasked with data collection and other covert operations meant to protect Britain’s National Security.
