Phys.org reports that “six months after Washington and Beijing agreed not to conduct cyber attacks on each other’s private sector for commercial gain, a top US spy questioned Tuesday whether China has cut such activities.  

“In September 2015, President Barack Obama and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping announced an accord under which neither the United States nor the Chinese government would conduct cyber-enabled theft of intellectual property.”  

“But Admiral Michael Rogers, who heads the US military’s Cyber Command, told lawmakers it was unclear if the Chinese government was holding up its end of the deal.”
