There are plenty of Chinese computers set up as proxies in which anyone around the world can use to attack from. China being such a closed society in a way would prevent any investigation from an outside source and so this is why their servers are great jumping points from people who wish to remain hidden.

The best hackers in the world never leave a trace. You never hear about them. They never get caught. A hacker could just take over someones computer in China to do the attack knowing the trace would end there.

If countries do not cooperate on cybercrime then everyone will become a victim.
