Red Threat Renewed?

In a development which has gone (at least in my humble opinion) seriously under-reported, it appears that the Chinese hacking threat hasn't been limited merely to stealing the latest iPod designs. From RT:

"The designs for more than two dozen major weapons systems used by the United States military have fallen into the hands of the Chinese, US Department of Defense officials say.

Blueprints for the Pentagon’s most advanced weaponry, including the Black Hawk helicopter and the brand new Littoral Combat Ship used by the Navy, have all been compromised, the Defense Science Board claims in a new confidential report.

The Washington Post acknowledged late Monday that they have seen a copy of the report and confirmed that the Chinese now have the know-how to emulate some of the Pentagon’s most sophisticated programs. 

This is billions of dollars of combat advantage for China,” a senior military official not authorized to speak on the record told Post reporters. “They’ve just saved themselves 25 years of research and development.” 

It’s nuts,” the source said of the report."

Advantage Red Team?
