Another Threat Made in China?

The Chinese government is disputing a report labeling it the world's most aggressive offender in probing for holes in other nations' Internet security and encouraging a looming global cyber showdown.

The report, issued Thursday by security software vendor McAfee Inc., said government-affiliated hackers in China are at the forefront of a brewing ''cyber Cold War'' still in its infancy.

Within two decades, according to McAfee, the scuffle could erupt into a worldwide conflict involving hundreds of countries attacking one another's online networks with sophisticated software.
