Default China responsible for fed hack

http://www.cnn.com/2015/06/04/politi...ent/index.html

Of course China is responsible. And they're gonna keep doing it.

Now in the news: "China keeps hacking the US and its' interests, what the US Gov't is not going to do to stop it"

Gov't won't do a flippin' thing because the only thing they can do short of shutting down China's access is destroy their hacking 'facilities'.

While China gains a financial and military edge, their hackers steal all personal data and wealth knowledge of the citizens. And the Gov't has their political panties all in a twist so as to not make China "upset".

Looks better to blame it on China versus some 14 year old pimple faced kid in his basement bedroom in Paducah, Ky.

I have no doubts it is China, at some point things will go kinetic.

By the way, the Iranians are pretty good at hacking US systems, as well.

Supposedly they got into the security clearance data base, that's a persons life history. Credit History, arrests, pot use, SSN, Birthplace, Mothers maiden name, birthplace and about 100 pages of questions. If they spent less money spying on americans and more money on protecting our networks it would be a better use of our tax dollars. Today the security clearance data base, tomorrow the power grid.

It's a gold mine for China's espionage program. Why does the college exchange student, professor and a businessman visiting China have top secret clearances

According to the news, the security clearance area was NOT breached?

I don't necessarily believe that, because the government probably wouldn't acknowledge it anyway.

Our thanks for educating them so they can later use it against us. Maybe we all need to buy more, "Made In China" goods so eventually nothing will be made here & therefore we'll have nothing to steal.

I saw an Washington Post article that said China denied hacking the US Gov't and wished the US trusted them more.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/...4ae_story.html

Maybe they can't defeat all our cybersecurity?

Regards,
They now know more about employees with a clearance than their neighbors or relatives

"One hack of OPM, which was disclosed by the government Thursday, dates at least to December, officials said. Earlier last year, OPM discovered a separate intrusion into a highly sensitive database that contains information on employees seeking or renewing security clearances and on their background investigations."
