Chinese Hackers Spear-Phishing for US Military Secrets « CYBER ARMS – Computer Security

According to recent secret cables provided to Reuters, the attacks have been traced back to the military:

“Secret U.S. State Department cables, obtained by WikiLeaks and made available to Reuters by a third party, trace systems breaches — colorfully code-named “Byzantine Hades” by U.S. investigators — to the Chinese military. An April 2009 cable even pinpoints the attacks to a specific unit of China’s People’s Liberation Army.”
