The Chinese military hacked into a Pentagon computer network in June in the most successful cyber attack on the US defence department, say American officials.
The Pentagon acknowledged shutting down part of a computer system serving the office of Robert Gates, defence secretary, but declined to say who it believed was behind the attack.
Current and former officials have told the Financial Times an internal investigation has revealed that the incursion came from the People’s Liberation Army.
Now this sounds like a lot of FUD, but who knows, it could be true. Or it could be that someone hacked a box in China, and then used it to launch attacks against the Pentagon. I doubt anyone will ever know for sure what happened with this.
