I'd wager a bit fat YES.
We've been very lax in the last decade with security, secrecy and protecting information.
There's been quite a number of Chinese spies apprehended over the last decade. Our immigration system, specifically work and students visas is part of
the problem if not all of it.
I also blame academics who blindly engage with Chinese academics not realizing to reach the heights of academia in China one must be a CCP member. And
CCP member are for life, you cannot leave the party until you die. It's permanent.
There''s many instances of CCP using blackmail on overseas Chinese people to get them to spy for the CCP.
