Hey , so the National Security Agency ( NSA ) has teamed up with some other agencies to issue a Cybersecurity Advisory ( CSA ) about China targeting important stuff in the US . The CSA is called "China is Messing with Our Critical Infrastructure" and it ' s led by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency ( CISA ) along with the FBI and a few other government groups . They ' re basically saying that this cyber group from China , called Volt Typhoon , has been hacking into the IT networks of communication , energy , transportation , water , and wastewater organizations in the US . It ' s pretty serious because they ' ve been doing it for years and could potentially cause major problems if there ' s a crisis or conflict with the US . The NSA is all over it though and they ' re working hard to stop these cyber attacks . The report also mentions that Volt Typhoon uses this sneaky technique called "Living Off the Land" to hide in systems undetected . If you want to read the full report , you can check it out here . And if you ' re interested in more cybersecurity stuff , they have a whole library of information and guidance . You can contact the NSA ' s Media Relations team if you have any questions .
