China "hijacked" 15 per cent of the world's internet traffic for 18 minutes earlier this year, including highly sensitive email exchanges between senior US government and military figures, a report to the US Congress said. A state-owned Chinese telecommunications firm re-routed around 15 per cent of all web traffic through its own servers during a brief period on April 8, the report said. The incident has raised fears that China may have harvested highly-sensitive information from re-routed emails. Another theory is that it could be testing a cyberweapon that could disrupt internet traffic from foreign servers.
