    China reportedly hacked in to the United States Chamber of Commerce and accessed the millions of files on companies. Do you care? What should we do?

    This is awful. I wish we had a leader who could stand up to China. Actually, China practically owns us so maybe they were just checking on their investment.

    Maybe the government should mandate better security standards on private networks? Industrial espionage is a private sector problem, would the government even be welcome trying to harden these networks to foreign hacking? Or should they stay out of it and let the free market handle the solution to China and others stealing information?

    Care about it? Yes
    Worry about it? No

    I also have no doubt that we are hacking them as well.

    This has to be the most repeated fallacy on this board. China owns about 7% of our debt.

    There were dozens of post this morning on the Chinese hacking US and other countries. There are more about the US anti-cyber terror set up in Washington.

    Looks like it's gonna be a face-to-face over which country has the best hackers.

    Owning our debt is slight compared to what Chinese interests own in terms of business, real estate and infrastructure.

    Feb 19,`13 WASHINGTON (AP) -- As public evidence mounts that the Chinese military is responsible for stealing massive amounts of U.S. government data and corporate trade secrets, the Obama administration is eyeing fines and other trade actions it may take against Beijing or any other country guilty of cyberespionage.

    I care. It's a serious issue, and just one of many that lead me to believe we can end up in an all out war with China if we aren't careful.
