China an 'extreme' threat to Australia: ASIO

China is listed as an “extreme” threat on a secret country-by-country counter-intelligence index compiled by Australia’s domestic spy agency. ASIO’s Deputy Director-General Counter-Espionage and Interference Peter Vickery told parliament today the level of espionage and foreign interference in Australia was now worse than at the height of the Cold War. We do have examples, current examples of (countries) where the threat level is at extreme,” Mr Vickery said.  “That means it's happening now.”
