The government of the United States seems to be trying to convince people that it isn’t spying on everybody. As part of the effort, the authorities recently arrested some Chinese officials and accused them of hacking.
Taking into account the fact that the National Security Agency was caught a week ago opening the boxes of Cisco routers with the intent to install spyware, it really looks like the arrests of the Chinese are supposed to distract the American press and allow the US to pretend to be a victim.
The US authorities charged 5 Chinese military officers and accused them of cracking American nuclear, metal and solar corporations in attempt to steal trade secrets, thus ratcheting up tensions between the world powers over online espionage. Of course, China denied the charges, with its Foreign Ministry claiming that the American grand jury indictment was simply “made up” and could damage trust between the nations.
In response, US Attorney General claimed that China used military and intelligence resources and tools against the US companies to get access to trade secrets or sensitive business information for the benefit of its state-owned companies. The alleged victims had filed unfair trade claims against their competitors from China, which allowed Washington to link the hacking activity with its impact on international business.
The United States insist that Chinese state-owned companies somehow “hired” Unit 61398 of the People’s Liberation Army for provision of “information technology services”, which also involved assembling a database of corporate intelligence. The US security experts believe that the US Department of Justice is a step forward to establishing a set of international norms to regulate cyber espionage. The problem is that a clear international legal framework only applies to attacks that damage physical infrastructure or can harm people. Spying activity is largely unregulated.
The experts pointed out that part of addressing this problem is setting standards for what is and is not an acceptable target for online spying. Some believe that it could prompt a dialog about International norms in this area, which could appear an important part of coming to grips with the impact that cyber security issues are having on the societies all over the world.

|well dont america normally put some silly story on the news when they want to distract the public from what there really doing.....lol|
the nsa break more rules than every living soul on the planet..lol
|The article heading is misleading - no Chinese 'Officials' were arrested in the US or anywhere else yet. According to other news sources, they are Chinese Military who have supposedly been identified and 'charged' for alleged offenses - though I highly doubt that the Chinese Gov will willingly hand them over to the US for any reason.|

|Understanding of the english language and common sense is needed if someone wishes to post "repacks" of articles obtained from other sources. Carjacker is correct, no one was arrested. This is only a feeble attempt by Eric Holder in our Justice Dept. to appear as if they are getting anything done besides covering for Obama's sorry ass. Citizens in America that possess common sense are embarrassed by the stupidity, corruption, and dishonesty exhibited by the whole of this administration, and eagerly await the day when they are either voted out or preferably, jailed. I understand that there are many reasons why foreigners might feel the need to bash the USA, as we are an easy target. Please make sure to get the facts straight when you do it though.|
|Ok lets see how this goes as my original post was deleted. Im guessing that extratorrent is a Chinese site that would explain my first post being deleted. So lets just be succinct Communist China = Copyright infringement and global hacking. Please dont be so suprised people. They are the only country that actively hires computer geeks for the express purpose of stealing other countries ideas and data.|
|When do NSA folks get arrested then? They were also caught stealing info that did not belong to them.|
|Sorry still laughing at the article the Chinese taught the world about metallurgy and was about 800 years ahead of everyone else at one point not to mention the 1000`s of other plagiarized inventions by the west,get a grip and see who has copied who and for centuries. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_inventions|
@5 when it comes to copyright infringement I would have to say we do not get our spring screeners from China each year nor early release cams ,the Russians are by far the best crackers for apps and games and 2nd only to America in infringement terms,we are all fed BS by the man but only some of us swallow it or wear it. (:^D)
Never in the History of the world has so many one-sided lies come out about a single nation,yes the Chinese are great copiers and do it as cheap as possible to maintain prominence in the market place because of which they are slighted by others who cannot make it for the same money due to high wages and overheads.It is easy for America to come out with every slight and offence but the truth is they can do it cheaper and profit by it and all America and others can do is borrow their money and dig themselves a hole till they own their countries economy as they do the USA and the UK amongst others.
|A good article Oziman and in conclusion putting America into a position whereby they dictate what constitutes cyber security breaches is like putting the fox in the Hen house and wishing it Bon Appetit.|
|why in the world would their system be connected to the internet to begin with?|
with all the money they waste, why don't they have their own intranet used only by government agencies an can not be accessed by any remote terminals not on that intranet...
|On this score, America has no haloes to polish.|
