Chinese military 'hacked into Pentagon'


By Stephen Adams

Last Updated: 2:04am BST 05/09/2007

The Chinese military shut down the Pentagon's computer network for more than a week during an unprecedented cyber attack, according to leaked reports of an internal investigation.

  • Chinese weapons 'reach Taliban'
  • 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.
