VOA: China, US Have Weapons for Cyberassault

WASHINGTON — As the World Wide Web has evolved and grown more complicated, so have the tools and techniques of cyber-espionage and military action.

Perhaps nowhere is this evolution more clearly seen than in China’s recently disclosed “Great Cannon” and its similarities to a tool reportedly possessed by the United States known as “QUANTUM.”

Depending on how they are wielded, both can serve as a high-tech tool for spies, intimidating weapons of cyberassault, or a combination of both, analysts say.
