  1. maybe they did it on them selfs since so they can play the victim card
  2. They've been getting ragged for years, they've just not been particularly keen to draw attention to it. It's only been since Obama made such a big deal of Chinese hacking and then the Snowdon affair that they've seen a benefit it publicising that it's not a one-way street.

    Given the disparity in technology and that the Chinese software market is still dominated by the products of US companies, it wouldn't surprise me if the ratio of successful attacks was against them.
  3. The only question here for me is was it hacktivists or was it a nation state throwing this up as a diversion while they do something else?
    I'm sure the next Edward snowden will tell us in years to come.
  4. It was probably an ND....
  5. So that's why I haven't had any ****ing spam- mails from Canadian Pharmacy today......
