Inside the NSA dump among many other findings, we find hundreds of NSA attacks on China, as well as penetration attempts in which the NSA “pretends” to be China so one wonders how difficult it would be for the NSA to pretend they are, oh, say Russia?

Among the contents one also finds the hacking configuration for China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile telecom company by number of subscribers (just under 900 million) and market cap.
Another example shows the NSA’s EquationGroup tool (ELECTRICSLIDE) impersonating a Chinese browser with fake Accept-Language.
