WSJ: Chinese hackers attacked networks of companies collaborating with the US Navy


It was noted that Chinese hackers also tried to gain access to databases of other large companies, including those that have contacts with the US Air Force.

It was stated that first of all the Chinese were interested in information on the location of warships, on what weapons are being installed on them as part of the modernization, which companies are responsible for retrofitting. Also, hackers, according to WSJ, tried to obtain personal data of employees of companies responsible for contacts with the Navy and the US Air Force.

It is noted that the most vulnerable in this situation are small American companies that do not have a quality cyber defense system. This vulnerability has allowed hackers to gain some access to information relating to US law enforcement agencies.
In the US media, it is stated that the alleged think tank of Chinese hacker attacks is located on the resort island of Hainan.

It is noteworthy that in the official reports of the Pentagon, the implementation of external hacker attacks is confirmed, but at the same time that they were carried out precisely from China, not a word is said.

In The Wall Street Journal claim that they were told about the Chinese hacker attacks "informed sources", whose names can not be published in the mode of public access.

      The Wall Street Journal claims that they were told about “Chinese hacker attacks” by “informed sources” whose names cannot be shared

      Everything is as always with mattresses: "There is evidence, but they are very secret and we will not show them to you." Old, trite, not convincing. But a certain audience will eat and believe.

        however, that they were carried out precisely from China, not a word is said

        Pasha, salute! It seems that the states have not yet decided who to appoint guilty - the number of candidates is not reduced

      It seems that Americans more and more like to be humiliated and offended. Honor somehow disappears.

        Let them switch from the Russian "threat" to the Chinese one.
        Or simply, we are Evil and China is our little "spiteful man".

        Before speaking against China, the Americans began to think sometimes. This can be seen in Trump's bravura start of the trade war with the Middle Kingdom and the rebound to its original positions after the retaliation from China. They decided to use arrests through business, as a result Canada received a double slap in the face. And the ram (bulk) of the American ship by the Chinese. It is not a sin to recall the forced landing of an American reconnaissance aircraft at a Chinese airfield. The Americans then, out of habit, began to threaten with heavenly punishments, and as a result, they had to apologize "exceptional". So far, the Chinese are in the lead in actions to protect their sovereignty and honor of the country.

        + and the people somehow don’t notice that the Pentagon didn’t publish the article, but the Journal and the Pentagon only confirms the presence of the attack, and the people are already excited - where is your evidence? )))

    Think about it. Russian hackers were able to force Trump Americans to choose for president, and then some miserable attempts to find out where the aircraft carrier J. Ford is being repaired
