Chinese Hackers Steal US Military Data

[ Edited ]

Military secrets such as plans for advanced robotics and future weaponry have been stollen.


Specifically, the software embedded in military microchips used to power military robots has been stolen. This could help China's own military robotics program, and ultimately, teach the Chinese how to dismantle our own robots and drones in the field.


Read the full story.

Not good... Normal for every country to do what they can to spy and learn what they can, but it looks like better security is needed!

Re: Chinese Hackers Steal US Military Data

They have copied BMW, Mercedes, Jeep, Microsoft, Apple, Nokia, Motorola, HTC, Benetton, Lacoste, Tomy Hilfiger, heaven above America, Disneyland, Eiffel Tower etc., etc., etc. .... so I am not surprised they hacked the military data ... what will be next? Private notes of Mrs. Michelle Obama or ...?

Re: Chinese Hackers Steal US Military Data

The following article is a update on Chinese Hackers Stealing US Data.


(FBI: We found US MILITARY AIRCRAFT INTEL during raid on alleged Chinese hacker)


By: By Darren Pauli, 14 Jul 2014


A Chinese entrepreneur has been arrested for attempting to steal information on the United States' Lockheed F-22 and F-35 aircraft and Boeing's C-17 cargo plane.

Su Bin – along with two uncharged Chinese co-conspirators – is alleged to have hacked into Boeing's corporate network as well as those of defence contractors in the US and Europe, to gain information the accused said in an email would help China "stand easily on the giant's shoulders".

Su, who had previously operated Chinese aviation firm Lode Technologies, is alleged to have broken into the Boeing network on January 2010, according to a report within a federal complaint unsealed in Los Angeles this week. The suspect and his "co-conspirators" are also alleged to have hacked the systems of other US defence contractors between 2009 and 2013 from a location in China.
