Washington: US Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has accused China of stealing commercial secrets and government information, saying the country is “trying to hack into everything that doesn’t move in America”, and urged vigilance, BBC reported on Sunday.

US officials, earlier this year, named China as the chief suspect in the massive hack of the records of a US government agency.

But China denied any involvement, and called US claims “irresponsible”.

Speaking at a campaign event in New Hampshire, Clinton, the former secretary of state, said China was stealing secrets from defence contractors and had taken “huge amounts of government information, all looking for an advantage”.

Clinton, who is running her presidential campaigns in the US has maintained her position atop the Democratic field.

Clinton said she wanted to see China’s peaceful rise but that the US needed to stay “fully vigilant”.

“China’s military is growing very quickly, they’re establishing military installations that again threaten countries we have treaties with, like the Philippines, because they are building on contested property,” she said.

US officials have blamed China for a major data breach of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) that was revealed in June.

A mobile application, which allows wealthy older people to connect with young lovers, is facing restrictions in China after a surge in popularity in the country, state media reported on Friday.

SeekingArrangement, which was the most downloaded app on Apple Store China this week and also registered high numbers on Android, has been banned from WeChat — a popular Chinese messaging service similar to WhatsApp — Efe news reported citing the official newspaper China Daily.

The move came after the state-run Global Times — linked to the Communist Party of China — urged the government to shut down the app’s operations in the country for promoting “sugar dating”, a practice in which wealthy older suitors are matched with younger people in exchange for economic benefits or gifts.

The company would also provide day-one support for Windows Server 2019 to deliver virtualised apps with XenApp.

Lawyers cited by official media warned that the services offered by such websites could be classified as prostitution, which is illegal in China.

The app was founded in 2006 by entrepreneur Brandon Wade, who has defended it by saying “love is a concept invented by poor people”, and has its Chinese headquarters in the Shanghai Free Trade Zone, which has fewer legal restrictions than the rest of the country.

Male members pay a monthly fee of $60, while females use the app for free or pay $15 to access more functions and are required to list their annual income, which should be higher than $47,000 to use the services. (IANS)
