China has accused the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) of hacking a top public university in aerospace and marine engineering, according to investigation results released by the National Computer Virus Emergency Response Center on Monday.

The investigation found the Office of Tailored Access Operation (TAO), a cyber-warfare intelligence gathering unit of the NSA, used more than 40 NSA-designated cyberattack weapons to steal key network device configuration, management and operation data, and other core technologies data from Northwestern Polytechnical University in Xi’an, Northwest China’s Shaanxi province.
