According to a new report from the New York Times the Biden administration is looking for spyware it thinks China has hidden in networks that manage a range of utilities to military locations.

According to a congressional official who spoke to the New York Times, the virus is “a ticking time bomb” and might provide China the ability to obstruct military operations by cutting off communications, water, and electricity to facilities.

Additionally, U.S. officials told the New York Times that because civilians frequently utilize the same infrastructure, the virus has the potential to be far more disruptive.

The officials reportedly claim that American-controlled facilities abroad also exhibit signs of the allegedly Chinese virus.

Officials who requested anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the subject added that the virus is more prevalent than initially believed and that it is unclear how far the computer code may travel.

Meetings in the situation room have been held over the past few months as American military officials attempt to gauge the severity of the issue and consider possible solutions.

According to the article, there is discussion inside the Biden administration over whether the Chinese spyware aims to disrupt military operations or, in the event of conflict, the lives of citizens throughout America.
