Via Drudge comes two stories. One about China's PLA hacking the Pentagon, and the other about North Korea's "one laptop."
Not that we're not doing it, but Chinese People's Liberation Army apparently has been at this for months, and finally got in. But they didn't get far:
The Pentagon is still investigating how much data was downloaded, but one person with knowledge of the attack said most of the information was probably “unclassified”. He said the event had forced officials to reconsider the kind of information they send over unsecured e-mail systems.It was far enough however:
“The PLA has demonstrated the ability to conduct attacks that disable our system...and the ability in a conflict situation to re-enter and disrupt on a very large scale,” said a former official, who said the PLA had penetrated the networks of US defence companies and think-tanks.I hope they just did us a favor, letting us know what to improve on, as I'm sure was the Chi-Coms' primary concern.
