The United States on Monday charged five Chinese military officers and accused them of hacking into American nuclear, metal and solar companies to steal trade secrets, ratcheting up tensions between the two world powers over cyber espionage.
China immediately denied the charges, saying in a strongly worded Foreign Ministry statement the U.S. grand jury indictment was "made up" and would damage trust between the two nations.
Officials in Washington have argued for years that cyber espionage is a top national security concern.

Gee, what happened to the old fashioned Chinese who sent money to President Clinton political campaigns and got the documents in the return mail?
Maybe, Obama’s gang wanted so much graft, it was worth the chance of stealing and going to jail. Are any of those indicted living in this country? Illegal immigration maybe an operational option if they are.

Did we send a strongly worded condemnation to the Chinese government over this?

Yes, Holder called it an indictment to make it sound really really serious.

I wonder if this is connected to China signing an agreement for Russia to supply gas to them.

Didn't somebody get the memo that they're supposed to leave the secret documents on a hard drive behind the copier?
