November 28, 2017
Three Chinese nationals were accused of hacking computers in three
corporations, the U.S. Department of Justice said Monday.
Yingzhuo, Dong Hao and Xia Lei were indicted Monday by a grand jury "for
computer hacking, theft of trade secrets, conspiracy and identity theft"
and intentionally causing damage to those computer systems.
The charges were brought by Acting Assistant Attorney General for
National Security Dana J. Boente, Acting U.S. Attorney Soo C. Song for
the Western District of Pennsylvania, and Special Agent in Charge Robert
Johnson of the FBI's Pittsburgh Division.
Three corporations, Moody's Analytics, Siemens AG, and Trimble, Inc.
were the victims of the alleged attacks, which took place between 2011
and May 2017.
