FBI Director Wray warns of China's potential to "wreak havoc" on US infrastructure via cyberattacks, indicating a rising superpower threat and fragile US-China relations. Wray's alert coincides with growing concerns over the vulnerability of interconnected transport, power, and energy networks. Wray cautioned about the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) hackers targeting critical US infrastructure, heightening the specter of an influential Chinese cyberattack. Prior to a congressional hearing, Wray countered the Chinese government's assurance of non-interference in the 2024 US presidential election. Discussions also highlighted China's potential infringement on systems that control traffic signals, water treatment, and the electrical grid.
