Wikipedia Claims Pro-China Group Attempted to Infiltrate and Control Site

Wikipedia alleges that the site was infiltrated by a pro-China group aiming to gain control of the site and edit articles to favor communist China’s viewpoint. The infiltration was described as “unprecedented in scope and nature” by the Wikimedia Foundation, which controls Wikipedia.
BBC News reports that the Wikimedia Foundation has stated that the site that bills itself as an online encyclopedia fell victim to an “infiltration” that aimed to promote the goals of China. The Wikimedia Foundation stated that the infiltration threatened the “very foundations of Wikipedia.”
