Chinese military cyber warfare

Reposting myself (is that kosher?) from the footsballs thread, new news to ensure you sleep soundly:

205 Speaking of football, this just came in c/o War News Updates:

"Chinese hackers break in to White House military office network in charge of the president's nuclear football"

"...likely the work of Chinese military cyber warfare specialists under the direction of a unit called the 4th Department of General Staff of the People's Liberation Army, or 4PLA."

"It is not clear how such a high-security network could be penetrated. Such classified computer systems are protected by multiple levels of security and are among the most 'hardened' systems against digital attack."

I blame the programmers. :/
