(KCEN) -- China is strongly denying one of it's military units has anything to do with a series of hacking attacks around the world.
A report by a Virginia-based U.S. computer security company identified a Shanghai military unit as the most likely driver behind the hacking.
According to the report, the unit in Shanghai stole hundreds of terabytes of data from more than 140 organizations dating back to 2006.
The report says most of the targeted organizations were in the U.S., while others were in Canada and the UK.
A spokesman for China's foreign ministry said the continuous criticism based on what he called, "rudimentary data," is irresponsible and unprofessional.
