Some very simple solutions. Take the power grid off the internet. No big mystery here folks, if they can't get to it they can't hack it. Same goes for air traffic control and other infrastructure sensitive computers. A computer WILL run if it's disconnected from the internet. Now, satellite shutdown of cars... I'm waiting for that to get hacked. What would the freeways look like if every On Star vehicle on the planet was sent the shutdown code?

Other gov'ts stealing secrets from each other isn't new. The U.S. became a Super Power after WWII after stealing the best scientists and Germany's best rocket technology that helped us win the cold war.

The computer controls the world, so who ever can be the master controler will rule the world. Everything is run by computers these days. Can't rule the air, sea and ground if none of your smart weapons work or you cannot communicate with your troops. We better get a handle on this or the party is over!

Nobody out there except the Chinese military is hacking to obtain sensitive information or to compromise the computer system. Nobody.

Sure they are. There are hackers out there all over the world constantly hacking at any country's computer systems.

Americans hack computers.

Russians hack computers.

Iranians hack computers.

Just a few who've been caught.

Do a google search and it won't be just the Chinese military doing the hacking. They probably contacted an American hacker for guidance and advice.

Good time for others hackers to get busy and so some hacking and letting the Chinese military be the fall guy.

Well with this news I am against drones now. I can see some wild Chinese kids flying our drones for fun chasing cars and people around.
