原文标题：China army unit linked to hacking against US
BEIJING/SAN FRANCISCO: A Chinese military unit is believed to be behind a series of hacking attacks, a US computer security company said, prompting a strong denial by China and accusations that it was in fact the victim of US hacking.
The company, Mandiant, identified the People's Liberation Army's Shanghai-based Unit 61398 as the most likely driving force behind the hacking. Mandiant said it believed the secretive unit had carried out "sustained" attacks on a wide range of industries.
"The nature of Unit 61398's work is considered by China to be a state secret; however, we believe it engages in harmful 'Computer Network Operations'," Mandiant said in a report released on Monday. It has stolen "hundreds of terabytes of data from at least 141 organizations across a diverse set of industries beginning as early as 2006, it added.
The Chinese foreign ministry said the government firmly opposed hacking, and that it doubted the evidence in the report. "Arbitrary criticism based on rudimentary data is irresponsible, unprofessional and not helpful in resolving the issue," spokesperson Hong Lei said. He cited a Chinese study which pointed to the US as being behind hacking in China.
If it is thru that the Chineese hack the US industry than that explaines hownthey can manufacture and sell simular products for less than half the US production cost.

Chinese are LIARS. They are aggressive liars and are not trustworthy. They are blaming USA for so called hacking and have made this counter attack when USA reported about the hacking by PLA. North Korea, China and Pakistan are the three rogue states.

Lamas for FREE TIBET (Dharmsala,India)
In ancient times China copied everything from India ranging from mathematics ,agriculture ,governance ,philosophy even religion like Buddhism they got is from India .Chinese philosophers were hugely inspired by concept of karma,dharma while many Chinese travelers like Hun-tsang came to India got stunned by the prosperity and intellect and again copied that in China .Old habits die hard so now china is copying everything from US from clothes,pencils to technology .
Is their any originality left in china? ,their people living under communists never allowed to think and why i have not seen any literature genius or artist ,musician or a poet coming out of China while Indians are winning Booker's year after year , Every year i see some great indian writer emerge from no where but never seen a Chinese , look like they are only allowed to live like zombies ,work like a robot in factory to copy paste job,pass solute to Mao every hour and not allowed to think creative or independently .REMEMBER ONE THING PROSPERITY HAS NO VALUE WITHOUT FREEDOM ,IDEAS AND CREATIVITY . So our movement should not only limited to FREEDOM OF TIBET but also FREEDOM FOR CHINESE .

A very good opportunity for the US to have them follow international trade rules & further implement new ones, like, if they want to sell in this country they should manufacture part of their goods here like starting with 5% and increasing it every few years(say 5 years) by another 5% till they reach a percentage of about 40 to 50% of their goods to be manufactured here. Further the public should start sending letters/emails to the Chinese embassy/consulate telling them that we will not buy their goods till they follow the international fair trade treaty that all countries follow.
