For the first time the Obama administration has explicitly accused Chinas military of hacking into computer systems of the U.S. government and its defense contractors.
"The accusations relayed in the Pentagons annual report to Congress on Chinese military capabilities were remarkable in their directness," writes David Sanger of The New York Times.

Many of the contractors and govt agencies don’t make it all that difficult.
Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore, plus many of the other Democrat leaders of the Clinton years.
How do you spell “TREASON”?
Also, both Bill and Hillary received at least 10 MILLION DOLLARS from the Mob, (i.e. LIUNA, Laborers International Union of No. America), as did the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee and related causes. Byron York, American Spectator, May 1977 article roughly entitled “Clinton’s Mob Bosses”.
The best greedy bastards and traitors money DID buy.
It’s practically criminal how these morons haven’t locked down their systems. I wonder if the problem is that they are operating with a post-Cold War mindset when the Chinese are every bit as aggressive as the Soviets as regards intelligence gathering.
The Chinese select their hackers like they choose their Olympic athletes. They canvass four and five year olds for potential and if selected the children will spend the rest of their lives learning how to hack and putting these skill to use.
This program started back in the mid 90s and is apparently reaping benefits.
A week ago I heard the Chinese stole ALL data from QinetiQ —everything.
For years the UK had been consolidating all their technical stuff there.
The Chinese took it all.
No its mostly ignorance and money. The rules are incredibly complicated forcing them to spend money on useless documentation instead of things which improve security. As a result they look for ways around the rules.
One of my clients with major govt contracts had all of the money for security cut from the contract. So they cut all of their security people and services.
I had one fortune 50 client who told me I was overstating their risk. They tried proving me wrong but couldn’t.
A month later their security officer watched someone change settings in their firewall from within the system and email data back to china.
Well don’t keep the data on top secret projects online! Problem solved.
It’s a little Bradley Manning kind of world out there. Traitors are a dime a dozen. Nobody is “in charge”. Everything is fair game. Freedom, Privacy, Security, Liberty, everything! Whatever can make you a quick buck and get you your “15 minutes”.
Hackers seem to be outsiders, insofar as their personalities are concerned.
Not sure, if this would hold true for a Chinese youth. But it would not surprise me if these hackers, also tend towards ideas of anarchy.
It might turn out that these Chinese hackers, hack the commie hacks, given, that they could gather personal information, much like an equivalent of an underground CIA.
I’m probably wishing too much. Just a thought.
In before Janet Napolitano says “Our computer systems have never been more safe!”
That is chilling. What a helpless feeling.
The United States compromised everything the moment we granted Baracko Obumbu top secret clearances.
Every good communist knows you have to bring the system down before you can hit the reset button. Ask any college professor.
These acts of treason were committed with the assistance and acquiescence of every senior republican. If it was not so the objectors would have gone public and blocked them. We are being sold out from within.
Thanks to Microsoft, the regime of licenses and lack of continuing self-study. Without many men in tiny enterprises, unimpeded by regulations, very little invention.
