The US Justice Department and FBI have reportedly shut down part of China’s Volt Typhoon network, a state-sponsored hacking campaign targeting American critical infrastructure. The FBI obtained a court order allowing them to remotely disable aspects of the hacking campaign, which was first revealed in May 2023.

US government officials are concerned about the hackers disrupting critical networks, including military installations and utilities.
