FBI Director Christopher Wray issued a stern warning that China’s intensifying cyber assaults aimed at the U.S. are now at “a scale greater than we’d seen before.”

Wray sounded the alarm at Munich’s annual security conference on Sunday. It’s just the latest warning he issued about Beijing’s efforts to plant malware inside U.S. critical infrastructure networks, the Wall Street Journal reports.

“It’s the tip of the iceberg… it’s one of many such efforts by the Chinese ,” he said on the sidelines of the security conference. 

Earlier, he told delegates that China is increasingly inserting “offensive weapons within our critical infrastructure poised to attack whenever Beijing decides the time is right.”

In January, Wray told Congress that Chinese hackers outnumber FBI cyber agents by at least 50 to one. 

Wray has been urging foreign governments in Europe and Asia to focus more on Chinese hacking campaigns, especially ones aimed at critical infrastructure. 

“I am seeing more from Europe,” he said. “We’re laser focused on this as a real threat and we’re working with a lot of partners to try to identify it, anticipate it and disrupt it.”
