简评:

多年来,中共对于美国内部政治的渗透和影响早就无处不在。但是由于之前美国延续其半个世纪以来的外交战略,一直只是把俄罗斯作为首要敌人,对于中共,美国却一直采取了绥靖政策。但最终事实证明,这只披着羊皮的狼才是美国乃至西方自由世界的最大威胁。中共发动的网络战不仅仅局限于对于西方知识产权的窃取,中共在利用高科技手段控制西方民众的舆论导向方面也是驾轻就熟。而对于干扰美国大选中共更是不遗余力。此次大选临近之际,美方不仅截获了来自于中共国的,可用于竞选投票的伪造驾照,而身为国家安全顾问的奥布莱恩也明确指出中共在网络方面在对美进行攻击。看来大选来临之际,一场血雨腥风将无可避免…

China targeting U.S. election infrastructure with cyberattacks, says O'Brien

奥布莱恩说,中共国通过网络攻击瞄准美国大选基础设施

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Chinese government-linked hackers have been targeting U.S. election infrastructure ahead of the 2020 presidential election, White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said on Sunday, indicating a more active level of alleged Chinese interference.

华盛顿(路透社)- 白宫国家安全顾问罗伯特·奥布赖恩(Robert O'Brien)周日表示,与中共政府相关的黑客一直在瞄准2020年总统大选前的美国选举基础设施,这表明中共涉嫌干预大选的活动已经愈演愈烈。

O’Brien’s comments appeared to go beyond a statement released on Friday by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence which said China “has been expanding its influence efforts,” and that Russia was already trying to undercut Democratic candidate Joe Biden. But did not specifically accuse Beijing of hacking attempts against U.S. election-related systems.

奥布莱恩的言论似乎超出了国家情报总监办公室周五发表的声明,该声明说中共国“一直在扩大影响力“,并指出俄罗斯已经在试图削弱民主党候选人乔·拜登的影响力。该声明并未明确指责北京对美国大选相关系统进行黑客攻击的行为。

“They’d like to see the President lose,” O’Brien said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “China - like Russia, like Iran - they’ve engaged in cyberattacks and phishing and that sort of thing with respect to our election infrastructure, with respect to websites and that sort of thing.”

奥布莱恩在哥伦比亚广播公司的《面向全国》节目中表示:“他们希望看到总统落败。中共国像俄罗斯和伊朗一样,都在对我们的选举基础设施和网站进行网络攻击和网络钓鱼。”

China has consistently denied U.S. government claims that it hacks U.S. companies, politicians or government agencies. “The U.S. presidential election is an internal affair, we have no interest in interfering in it,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said in April.

美国政府指责中共国黑客入侵美国公司,政客或政府机构,但中共国一直否认这种说法。中共国外交部发言人耿爽在今年四月曾表示:“美国总统大选是美国内部事务,我们对此无意干涉。”

O’Brien said the United States had seen hackers try to infiltrate websites belonging to Secretary of State offices around the country, which are responsible for administering elections at the local level, and collecting data on Americans.

奥布莱恩说,美国已经看到来自全国各地的黑客试图入侵美国国务卿办公室的网站,这些网站负责管理地方一级的选举并收集美国民众数据。

“It is a real concern and it’s not just Russia,” he said. “There will be severe consequences for any country that attempts to interfere in our free and fair elections.”

他表示:“这是一个令人担忧的问题,干扰绝非仅仅来自俄罗斯。任何试图干预我们自由公正选举的国家都将面临严重后果。”

The National Security Council did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The ODNI declined to comment or clarify whether O’Brien’s comments contradicted their own.

国家安全委员会没有立即回应置评请求。国家情报总监办公室拒绝评论或澄清奥布莱恩的言论是否与其观点相悖。

The ODNI previously said that “adversaries” seek to compromise the private communications of American political candidates and penetrate U.S. election systems ahead of November’s election. And that China would prefer President Donald Trump does not win re-election.

国家情报总监办公室此前曾表示,“对手”正试图在11月份总统大选前破坏美国政治候选人的私人通讯,并渗透美国选举系统。而且中共国方面不希望看到川普总统的连任。

Multiple reviews by U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia acted to boost Trump’s 2016 campaign and undercut his rival Hillary Clinton’s chances in that election.

美国情报机构的多次审查认为,俄罗斯在2016年的竞选活动中支持了川普,并削弱了其竞争对手希拉里·克林顿在大选中的机会。
