+ - Chinese hacking American military networks->

Anti-Globalism writes: "China is stealing sensitive information from American computer networks and
stepping up its online espionage, according to a US congressional panel.

Beijing's investment in rocket technology is also accelerating the
militarisation of outer space and lifting it into the "commanding heights"
of modern warfare, the advisory group claims. The strident warning, which
may have a chilling effect on relations between the two Pacific powers,
comes in the annual report of the US-China economic and security review
commission due today.

A summary of the study, released in advance, alleges that networks and
databases used by the US government and American defence contractors are
regularly targeted by Chinese hackers. "China is stealing vast amounts of
sensitive information from US computer networks," says Larry Wortzel,
chairman of the commission set up by Congress in 2000 to investigate
US-China issues."
