BioTitan writes "The advanced cyberattacks coming out of China may also be covering the tracks of insider spies. If an insider steals information from a network, hackers will launch a cyberattack against the same network to make it look like it was stolen by the cyberattack and prevent an investigation that could catch the spy. Jarrett Kolthoff, president of SpearTip and a former special agent in U.S. Army counterintelligence, told Epoch Times the technique is standard operation in Chinese espionage. He said they’ll 'use other means as a ruse to make it show that the information was collected through maybe zero-day malware, or through some other means or methodology, so that the bad insider is never identified and that insider can continue to collect.' Gang Liu, a former vice president at Morgan Stanley and a former leader of China’s Tienanmen Square student movement, explained it simply. He said the thinking in Chinese espionage is if you want to steal something, 'just put someone else’s fingerprints on it, and they’ll chase someone else.'"
