The newspaper cited another source as saying there was a "very high level of confidence... trending towards total certainty" that the PLA was responsible.
A few days before the Pentagon breach, Chinese hackers were accused of infiltrating German government computers.
Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, raised the issue with China's premier, Wen Jiabao, in a visit to Beijing and afterwards the Chinese Foreign ministry pledged to take "firm and effective action" to combat international computer hacking.
US officials said the penetration in June heightened concerns because of fears China had demonstrated the ability to disrupt the network at critical times.

Up to 10 Whitehall departments are being regularly targeted by computer hackers from countries such as China and Russia who want to find out state secrets, it has emerged.
The news came amid claims that hackers from China's People's Liberation Army had attacked the IT systems of the Foreign Office and other government departments.
Earlier this week, in the US, Chinese hackers were blamed for a "detected penetration" of parts of the email system used in the office of Robert Gates, the US Defence Secretary.
David Davis, the Conservatives' home affairs spokesman, said: "There is a very real danger that this could threaten the security and privacy of every British citizen. This is extremely serious and would be even more so if the Chinese military was involved."

The Regulations grant artists the right to receive a royalty on any resale of his or her work after the first transfer by the artist of ownership (which does not necessarily have to be the first sale; the initial transfer may be a gift). This right applies to works that are protected by copyright, and lasts for the same length of time as copyright protection (i.e., the lifetime of the artist plus 70 years after the end of the year of the artist's death). The amount of the royalty that is payable is a percentage of the sale price, which is calculated as follows: 4% on the first â‚¬50,000 and 3% on the remaining amount, up to a cap of â‚¬12,500.

Volvo ReCharge Concept.
It's called the ReCharge, a concept car from Volvo to be unveiled officially next week at the Frankfurt Auto Show, it's a plug-in hybrid with a battery-only range of 100 km before you need to have the car's four-cylinder 1.6-liter Flexfuel engine kick in to power the car and recharge the battery. The ReCharge is built off a specially designed Volvo C30, meaning it's got a platform that doesn't need to be built from scratch -- boosting the possibility we could see something like it really hit the streets. The best news would be for the environment which would see "about 66% lower emissions of carbon dioxide compared with the best hybrid cars available on the market today."
Four electric motors, one at each wheel, provide independent traction power. Four-cylinder 1.6-litre Flexifuel engine drives an advanced generator that efficiently powers the wheel motors when the battery is depleted
