Chinese Hacking Is Much Worse Than We Knew

    I just read report in Washington Post and it ties most to defense contractors and sub contractors; better methods to protect our weapon designs from internet cyperhacking ought to be nonpartisan priority.

  • I will never forget when President Billary Clintons made China “most favored nation” in the 1990’s. That and the Blue Dress is where I trace back the beginning of our end.

    Why are these computers attached to the internet? Shouldn’t they be isolated and insulated?

    All these reports about the effects of Chinese hacking are grossly exaggerated. Stealing the details of weapons systems are not quite like stealing a purse. These things are way too complicated. A modern system involves tens of millions of lines of code, takes thousands of the world’s best engineers decades to develop. Even you give it to the Chinese for free on a pendrive, by the time the Chinese were able to digest and copy it, US will move on to the next generation of weapons system.

    • It’s still a enormous leap up from their current military hardware, and “last year’s cutting edge” is still enormously valuable.
