Chinese hackers have hit nearly every Washington institution, according to unnamed intelligence officials.
“The dark secret is there is no such thing as a secure unclassified network,” one said in a Newser report. “Law firms, think tanks, newspapers. If there’s something of interest, you should assume you’ve been penetrated.”
One FBI official had this to add, according to Newser: “I’ve yet to come across a network that hasn’t been breached.”
America’s big hope, the unnamed intelligence experts said in the Newser report, is that China gets so much information that its hackers just can’t process it.
