China-based hackers may target Internet-based e-mail, data storage and
other services provided overseas by such companies as Microsoft Corp.
(MSFT:US) to spy on the U.S., a congressional commission found.

The Chinese government wages “a large-scale cyber espionage campaign” and
“has successfully targeted the networks of U.S. government and private
organizations,” the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission
concludes in its annual report to Congress released today.

The commission for the first time said cloud computing, which connects
Internet services, “represents a potential espionage threat.” The report
fails to cite any examples of the Chinese government using the technology
in attacks.
