Captain: Missle Test! Sailor: The Chinese hackers are deeper into our weapons systems than we realized.
Time to turn some of these hackers into traitors, or else start enlisting ourown hackers in response.
That’s the reason the Soviet ‘Space Shuttle’ didn’t work.
If the circuit boards for patriot missles are coming from China, wouldn’t one expect the Chinese to, I don’t know…find a way to hack into the weapons systems it helped build?
Genome Project: A law banning Chinese-sourced parts vs. higher profits? And you say the law holds? Corporations are non-geographic nations, with their own foreign policy, salaries instead of taxes, and blacklists instead of trials for those of questionable loyalty. You can’t invade them because they are everywhere. You could jail them, but haven’t the guts, and besides, they write our laws, and have free use of our military for their private army.
Why would top secret documents/plans be kept on a computer open to anyone on the internet anyway? Stupidity, and it is indicative of our military industry.
It started a long time ago.
The wingnut right is always looking for a new stupidity to claim as their own. What’s funny, and any folks who’ve worked in “defense” can verify, is that publications like “Aviation Leak”, ’er “Aviation Week and Space Technology” regularly publish materials that give adequate clues as to what the U.S., or Russia, OR China, are up to.
We’re buying Huey parts from Viet Nam now, and much of our military equipment comes from overseas. A little look into how much of our electronic equipment comes from Israel is also of “interest”.
Hacking is pretty universal, just like the U.S. and Israel getting into Iran’s computers to mess up their centrifuges, which also took out some other folks as “collateral damage”.
And yes, contractors are largely responsible for security leaks.
