Two Chinese telecommunication companies, Huawei and Zte, have attempted to expand into the United States. But in an age where cybersecurity is considered an emerging threat—and espionage an ever-present one—the US isn't exactly welcoming the foreign businesses with open arms. Congress has flagged both Huawei and Zte as security threats and is warning them against doing business in America. Tim Karr, senior director of strategy for FreePress, weighs in on what the likelihood of such a contract could be given Congress' constant warnings of an imminent cyberwar.

This isn't the first time that China have been accused of hacking into some US systems.. I think the power stations may have been the last, but there have been many.

Some advice for any US officials reading this post.. Unplug you're fucking internet cable :D

Seriously though, use a custom operating system designed in-house.. Use a custom transmission and encryption protocol, also designed in-house.. and ditch common IP/Internet protocls.
I cannot believe this is not already in practice regarding high-end military and government to be honest, which makes this post seem suspicious... Hesitating with the bullsit flag, but only slightly.

Chinese Hackers Breach White House Military Network

October 8, 2012 • From

Chinese hackers have breached a computer system used by the White House Military Office for nuclear commands.

Hackers connected to China’s government infiltrated a U.S. government computer network containing some of Washington’s most sensitive information, the Washington Free Beacon reported on September 30.

U.S. authorities officially won’t blame China for the attacks, but experts say the hack was the handiwork of Chinese military cyberwarfare specialists tied to a unit called the 4th Department of General Staff of the People’s Liberation Army. Since the hacked system is used for America’s nuclear commands, this cyberattack is considered one of Beijing’s most belligerent ever against the U.S. ... 121001/?ln

The hack was carried out in early September by the spear phishing method, in which disguised e-mails ask recipients to disclose confidential information. Security officials are still investigating the incident to determine the specific level of damage that resulted from it, and some officials remain concerned that the attackers were successful in breaching the classified information. If they are right, and Beijing’s attack was successful, China could use the information in future conflicts to locate the president for targeting purposes, to disrupt the president’s strategic command of U.S. forces both in the country and abroad, and to intercept presidential communications.

The incident underscores the abysmal failure of the Obama administration to confront China about its cyberespionage.

Former McAffee cyberthreat researcher Dmitri Alperovitch said this about China’s incessant attacks on U.S. intelligence:

The Chinese have an aggressive goal to infiltrate all levels of U.S. government and private sector networks. The White House network would be the crown jewel of that campaign, so it is hardly surprising that they would try their hardest to compromise it.

China’s belligerency is nothing new, but Beijing’s rapidly expanding technological reach now allows it to extend that belligerency in new directions, up to soaring new heights and down to murky new depths. Washington’s failure to take decisive action against Beijing’s acts of cyberwarfare is naive, but for a nation with a broken pride in its power, it is not surprising. Watch for China’s bellicosity to continue to calcify, and for America’s pride in its power to continue to erode.
