“Cold Cuts” Special Presentation by FBI San Diego: Cold Cuts is an FBI San Diego investigation that made national headlines when it led to the indictment of 10 Chinese intelligence officers and their recruited hackers and insiders in October 2018. These subjects, identified as representing China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS), negatively affected many U.S. interests in a glaring example of state-sponsored espionage. The FBI, led by the San Diego Field Office, conducted the investigation that resulted in the charges. This was the finish line of a seven-year investigative race that involved other field offices, the U.S. intelligence community, and several San Diego-based companies to reach the indictment. The following is a link to DOJ press release about the case: DOJ Press Release
