china 385 China Denies Hijacking U.S. Internet Traffic

China is denying accusations that it hijacked U.S. Internet traffic last spring. 

The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission reports that traffic to several U.S. corporate and government websites travelled through China for about 18 minutes in April.  Web traffic normally travels to sites by the shortest route possible.  The incident led officials to worry that China was collecting sensitive information or planning an attack against the U.S.  China Telecom Corporation said today that it did not hijack the traffic.
