The Biden administration blamed China Monday for the hack of Microsoft Exchange email server software that compromised tens of thousands of computers around the world earlier this year.
The administration made the announcement with a group of allies and partners, including the European Union, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and NATO.
The Biden administration also disclosed several other cyber-threats from China, including ransomware attacks from government-affiliated hackers that have targeted companies with demands for millions of dollars.
What does the Biden administration intend to do about it? Will sanctions be imposed?
We’ll let President Biden speak for himself:
Biden says he won't take action against China for cyberattacks because the government is only protecting and accommodating the hackers, not actually responsible for the hacks.

Is there any doubt at this point that the President of the United States is compromised by China?
