China Hacking Our Government’s Secrets

// Posted by on 04/04/2012 (11:57 AM)

I found this opinion piece in the NYTimes yesterday about how China is hacking our government’s systems to steal our secrets. I thought it was interesting as it follows with our discussion of digital warfare and the Stuxnet article we have been discussing.Recently we have been focusing on hacking on a personal level with groups like Anonymous and teenage 4chan users, but we have drifted away from hacking as more of a national threat.

I thought that stopping this kind of thing was the point of that base being built in the Utah desert? I know all of our initial reactions were caught up in the likelihood that the base would spend a good deal of time spying on US citizens but. if there was a check on this base to make certain that their resources were devoted to protecting our country from outside cyber attack then it could be very beneficial.
