IBM has stated in a statement that it has not lost any sensitive information following a hacking attack by potential hackers employed by the Chinese government on Big Blue and other companies such as HPE. This message is from the financial news service Bloomberg.

According to Big Blue’s statement to the financial news service, the company indicates that it is at the highest of the attacks and is constantly working to protect the company and its customers from these kinds of threats. IBM feels very responsible for the customer’s data that is stored with the company and has been able to establish that no sensitive information from IBM itself or from its customers has been leaked.

Accusations by the American government

Big Blue is responding to the allegations published last week by the United States Department of Justice that the Chinese government, in particular the Chinese Department of Security, has been stealing intellectual property from American companies for years. These attacked companies would therefore include IBM and HPE.

Reaction of HPE

HPE also states in a statement to Bloomberg that it considers the security of the company’s data as an absolute top priority. It does not want to comment on the accusations made by the American government.
