This troubling trend fulfills a specific Bible prophecy.

The United States Justice Department unveiled a list of criminal charges against the Chinese telecom company Huawei last month in the latest acknowledgment of China’s systematic theft of American intellectual property and trade secrets.

Most of the charges were related to Huawei stealing intellectual property from T-Mobile, including the firm’s proprietary phone testing technology. Court documents say Hauwei promised hefty bonuses to any employee who was able to gather confidential information on T-Mobile, encouraging them to send photos and spec sheets to Chinese officials. One Hauwei employee was caught stealing a proprietary robotic arm. Continue reading

A Maritime Self-Defense Force flotilla of three ships arrived in the Philippines early Sunday on a goodwill visit — the first to include a Japanese submarine in 15 years — amid China’s growing assertiveness in the region.

The training submarine Oyashio, accompanied by the destroyers Ariake and Setogiri, made a port call at Subic Bay, home of a former U.S. naval base, ahead of planned open sea drills. Some 500 Japanese personnel, including 55 officer candidates, are taking part in the confidence-building exercise. Continue reading

Pentagon Attacked by Computer Virus

A computer virus that destroys documents and spreads to other networks recently infected computers at the Pentagon, the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) said on Thursday.

One of the Pentagon’s hundreds of networks “recently identified an infection after having issues opening Word and Excel documents,” DISA said in a statement.

Dmitri Alperovitch, a computer security specialist, told the Free Beacon, that the sophisticated attack software most likely originated from a foreign government, possibly China.

According to an Aug. 31 McAfee threat alert, the virus has two names: W32/XDocCrypt.a, and W32/XDocCrypt.b, that “parasitically infects” Microsoft Office Word, Excel, and related executable files.

The virus appears to be designed to destroy or disable documents by first encoding its contents using an encryption program, and then replacing the document with a malicious software file that the encrypted data attached to it. The original data is eventually deleted if the infection is not detected and steps are not taken to recover the documents.

The virus also replicates itself and spreads to other computers.

“The infection routine searches for files with ‘.doc’, ‘.xls’ or ‘.exe’ in the file name, and tries to infect them,” the report said.

To prevent digital infections, the security firm recommended blocking five Internet addresses: 184.82.162.163, 184.22.103.202, attow.com.br, http://www.zugo-bikes.com, forum.perfect-privacy.com.
