|Su Bin, 51, admitted participating in the hacking of US defense secrets and has been convicted to almost 4 years in jail. The Chinese businessman was accused of participating in a scheme by Chinese military officers to obtain sensitive military data. It is known that the spies targeted projects including the fighter jets and military transport aircraft.
As a result, the court sentenced Su Bin to 46 months in jail and ordered him to pay a $10,000 fine. It was found that he helped the Chinese military hackers in their attempts to illegally access and steal designs for cutting-edge military aircraft.
Although the Chinese government has repeatedly denied any involvement in hacking the US military, the United States believes there is ample evidence: for example, Su’s spying activities have been openly lauded in China where is referred to as a hero in the local media.
According to the indictment dated 2 years ago, prosecutors said the individual, who ran a China-based aviation and aerospace company from Canada, travelled to the United States multiple times over the past 6 years and worked with unidentified co-conspirators in China to steal the information. It is known that in pleading guilty Su Bin admitted sending messages to his co-conspirators telling who and what to target with their hacking and translating the stolen data to Chinese.
According to prosecutors, Su admitted taking part in the crime for financial gain. The individual was arrested in Canada 2 years ago and ultimately consented to US extradition. Su Bin eventually pleaded guilty this spring to one count of conspiring to gain illegal access to a protected computer and to violate the US Arms Export Control Act.
