The FBI has warned China is the “defining threat of our generation” with hackers ready to “wreak havoc” in the US.

FBI Director Christopher Wray has said the national security threats in the US are “more complex and sophisticated than ever” as he claimed China is “becoming more aggressive in their efforts to steal our secrets.”

During a speech delivered to the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Law and National Security on Tuesday, the FBI chief warned China is the “defining threat of our generation.”

He said: “Today’s national security threats are more complex and sophisticated than ever. We’re seeing hostile nation-states becoming more aggressive in their efforts to steal our secrets and our innovation, target our critical infrastructure, and export their repression to our shores.

“Front and centre is China—the defining threat of our generation. To put it simply, the CCP [Communist Party of China] is throwing its whole government at undermining the security and economy of the rule-of-law world.”

Mr Wray warned officials that “China’s hacking program is larger than that of every other major nation, combined.”

“If each one of the FBI’s cyber agents and intelligence analysts focused exclusively on the China threat, China’s hackers would still outnumber FBI cyber personnel by at least 50 to 1”, he added.
