It appears this is just western propaganda because:

One analyst said Friday that he is not sure the attacks point to the
Chinese government. Rob Knake, a cybersecurity expert with the Council

firm investigating the attacks suggests that they "were not
state-sponsored or the work of an elite, sophisticated group such as
the Chinese military."
