Article: China’s Cyber-Militia, by Shane Harris. National Journal Magazine, 31 May 2008

The idea that PLA hackers are behind a pair of cascading power failures (including North America’s largest ever blackout) is an extreme one, but given the Chinese interest in asymmetric warfare it makes sense. I have no doubt that the military and industrial espionage described in the article occurs, and I would be ashamed and upset to discover that we aren’t giving as good as we are getting.
