Microsoft’s response to Chinese cyber attack was to expand business in China

On March 2, communist China hacked Microsoft’s servers and compromised data of more than 60,000 Microsoft customers. Two days later, Microsoft responded not by renouncing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for its egregious actions, but by expanding its cloud computing service Azure into China in order to “empower” Chinese citizens.

“State-sponsored” hackers, Microsoft admitted, took advantage of vulnerabilities in the company’s Exchange software, allowing foreign actors to install malware into the servers. This Chinese virus effectively opened up people’s private emails to the CCP.

Even so, Microsoft is charging forward with its expansion into communist China, which the company says has some of the most aggressively censored and monitored internet access in the world.

“Our intelligent, trustworthy, and neutral cloud platform has been empowering hundreds of thousands of developers, partners, and customers from both China and the world to achieve more with technical innovation and business transformation,” proudly announced Alain Crozier, Microsoft’s head for the Greater China Region.

Microsoft has maintained a decades-long relationship with China, having outsourced much of its research and development (R&D) to the authoritarian regime. Microsoft is also partnered with a Chinese military university, which conducts research into artificial intelligence (AI).

Those affected by the hack include the European Banking Authority and other high-profile victims. Thousands of others businesses also had their Microsoft accounts hacked by the communist Chinese regime.

The Biden regime is urging companies like Microsoft to patch up their vulnerable software as quickly as possible because hackers remain an “active threat” to Big Tech. Communist China has yet to take credit for the Microsoft hack, however.

Azure will play a key role in expanding the global surveillance state

Azure’s expansion into China will include the construction of several new data centers in the north part of the country. This will increase speeds for Chinese cloud service users throughout the region.

21Vianet, a local Chinese data service provider, will work together with Azure to make the project work as planned. 21Vianet already conducts business with other Chinese tech companies such as Alibaba and Huawei, the latter of which the Trump administration said functions as a conduit for Chinese state espionage.

“The Azure cloud computing service includes facial recognition software, a feature that might be attractive for authoritarian regimes,” writes Yuichiro Kakutani for Free Beacon.

“The company touts that ‘no machine learning experience is required’ to operate the program, which can search through a repository of up to one million people. Chinese authorities are increasingly using facial recognition to police their citizens, including the Muslim Uighurs in Xinjiang.”

Almost unbelievably, Microsoft currently maintains partnerships with some 17,000 communist Chinese firms. Despite the plandemic, Microsoft has continued to recruit and amass progressively more local business partners throughout China, including a Huawei spinoff company that constructs laptop computers.

Microsoft’s largest R&D base is also located in communist China, employing more than 3,000 engineers and researchers scattered throughout four separate regions of the country. This facility, the Washington-based company says, will help communist China to become more prosperous.

“Microsoft Asia-Pacific R&D Group’s teams are spread across the region … Located in tech parks and recognized hubs for innovation, these campuses are strategically positioned to take advantage of – and contribute to – China’s rapid transformation to an innovation economy,” the Microsoft website explains.

Communist China is also producing most of the face masks that people are wearing for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19), as well as much of the 5G technology components that are being installed all around the world.

“Boycott all products from China,” one of our own commenters wrote.
