Big Tech seems to be really good at censoring people, but also have a really difficult time keeping sensitive data safe from foreign enemies — that’s IF those Big Tech companies actually consider places like China as an enemy. They can’t even seem to protect their own devices.

According to Breitbart, Bloomberg News reported that a Microsoft engineer’s account was hacked by the Chinese, which in turn compromised “email accounts belonging to senior U.S. officials.”

How many times do people have to declare that China is evil before any prominent American entity does anything about it, or, at least does something to protect against an eventual cyber attack from that communist hellhole?

This hack supposedly happened back in June, but was revealed after an internal investigation by the company itself.

The Bloomberg article stated the following about the hack:

…Microsoft has disclosed that China-linked hackers compromised the corporate account of one of its engineers, then used this unauthorized access to steal a digital key in order to forge authentication tokens. These tokens granted them access to email accounts on Microsoft’s cloud servers, including those belonging to Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, Representative Don Bacon, and State Department officials.

Reportedly, China — like they usually do, and like any good communist does —has repeatedly denied hacking the targets in the U.S.

I understand China provides so much to the U.S. in terms of goods, but that should be cut off completely, especially since China has affected the health of the entire world — negatively — in the past few years, if you’re picking up what I’m putting down.
