China denies cyberattacks on US election campaigns – Hong Kong Free Press

Beijing on Friday denied trying to meddle in US presidential election after American tech giant Microsoft said it had parried cyberattacks from overseas groups — including from China — against both the Republican and Democratic campaigns.

Microsoft warned it had detected attempts at election interference from overseas, including Russia, Iran and the China-based “Zirconium”, which targeted people linked to Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s campaign.

But China batted away the allegation, accusing Microsoft of “fabrication” and “creating trouble”.
