Chinese hackers had a fortune chance to gather really extensive amounts of information about a year ago. And officials still don’t know exactly how much information was stolen and who was affected. Do you believe this news? Looks like another media hoax that is being spread for us to… hate China?

Considering most computers are made there, its almost expected. Hell, they probably installed hacker chips for the govt computers. Nothing like having the possible enemy building your hardware,lol.
The hardest part of doing nothing is knowing when your done.

As I have pointed out in another post, if you are a criminal, you won't be so stupid to leave a trail of your footprints all the way from the scene of the crime to your house for the police to go after you. Instead you will try to mislead the police by leading them to a wrong place, especially your enemy's house. Nowadays in an interconnected world, people are travelling everywhere to work, study, for holiday, pleasure, etc. Foreigners can travel to China any time, and Chinese can travel everywhere. Hacking activities that are traced to China do not mean that they are done by Chinese.
