The world woke up on Monday to revelations of a sort that have become disconcertingly routine.
Chinese hackers had breached governments and universities in a yearslong campaign to steal scientific research, according to a U.S. Justice Department indictment.
Separately, several governments, including the Biden administration, accused Beijing of hiring criminal hackers to infiltrate the world's largest companies and governments for profit.
Only hours before, a consortium of news agencies reported that governments worldwide have used spyware sold by an Israeli company to monitor journalists, rights workers, opposition politicians and foreign heads of state.
The rush of allegations represent what cybersecurity and foreign policy experts say is a new normal of continuous, government-linked hacking that may now be a permanent feature of the global order.
