U.S. military computer networks are under constant attack. And the rate of attack is skyrocketing, from 300 in 2003 to more than 75,000 last year. "Our adversaries are able to inflict a substantial amount of harassment and a measurable amount of damage upon DOD communications networks at practically no cost to themselves," says the director of technology for the military group responsible for defending networks.
Army chief of staff Jack Keane:
"The Chinese were doing this on a regular basis. That’s a given. They’re very aggressively getting capability. It’s common knowledge in the Pentagon. One Army officer says a Trojan horse virus was used to breach a system and download information about the capabilities of a future Army command and control system "for eight months before the service detected a security breach."
DOD officials think can contain 90% of the attacks through better procedures but as many as 10% of attacks may get through because of advanced hacking procedures.
Pentagon figures show that more attempts to scan Defense Department systems come from China, which has 119 million Internet users, than from any other country. VanPutte said this does not mean that China is where all the probes start, only that it is "the last hop" before they reach their targets.

The problem with DoD and others is just one.
The best Sys network admins are in private corporations, where they get very well paid, not on State Deps.
With the Russian excercise, a poor rice harvest, the need for oil and the need to come into its own, this is all troubling news.
Why is it so hard to believe?
Theyve been spying on the US Government since BEFORE clinton.
not just watching and recording but LISTENING.
there's no PROOF its the chinese..
But in my opinion, and with all the PREVIOUS mossad caught spying and watching the America's...
Its seems more likely to me that its MOSSAD doing the hacking,
placing clues to implicate the chinese.
War through deception???
