Are US and Chinese Cyber Intrusions So Different?

Are US and Chinese Cyber Intrusions So Different? | China | Scoop.it
Both the U.S. and China have been linked to cyber snooping. How different are their activities?

 

At the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore in June of this year, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel voiced concernabout “the growing threat of cyber intrusions, some of which appear to be tied to the Chinese government and military.” Indeed, earlier this year the long-suspected role of the People’s Liberation Army in cyber espionage was confirmed by Mandiant, a U.S. security firm. Now intrusions seem to be targeted at defense and aerospace industries using the same tactics. Similarly, those Chinese hackers who breached the New York Timescomputer network last year appear to be mounting intrusions with updated malware. Asked about its connection to the attack against the Times, the Ministry of National Defense replied, accusing “the Chinese military of launching cyberattacks without solid proof is unprofessional and baseless.”...............

Here comes another important advancement to a cleaner China, the GHG accounting tool. It is interesting to see how this tool will be used by the local authorities and industries and how efficient it will be.

GHG accounting is the essential component for any climate policy to control emissions

Some discussions regarding rent-seeking and government's 'picking winners' on T2U and in the Ecomomist prompt me to scoop this. It highlights the absolute authority of the Chinese government as regards matters such as land rights and thus why there's still nervousness about investing in China. In this case though, it's the nation's citizens that lose out, even if the broader aim is 'honourable' seeming.

A close second for article of the day - again via MR.

 

Another really insightful piece and symptomatic of the quality of material that Cowen and his time scout out...

 

The gist? We're all doomed, captain. China will drag us all down because it cannot avoid a hard landing.

 

And with that: good luck to my top year economists in their China paper tomorrow. If you're reading this on 9th June - then you should be in bed...

The first incident sounds like it could be more seriously related to crime, while the second does not. Interestingly that "local officials" talked to Radio Free Asia.
