    Good catch, US cyber solder.
    hopefully Chinese cyber soldiers also have "Distinguished Warfare Medal "

    Chinese hacker looks naive before US.
    The Pentagon sparked an uproar among troops and veterans this week when it revealed that a new high-level medal honoring drone pilots will rank above some traditional combat valor medals in the military's "order of precedence."

    It appears that the Chinese are serious about all aspects of warfare and are poised to overtake all of the world to achieve global supremacy.

    Good luck to the Chinese.

    any espoiniage will have some damage, for example soviet/israel spy steal technology/intel in US, and vice versa. the best way is to defend such attack and upgrade our own offense

    So, basically this unknown US "security firm" just said:"We found some hacking activities coming from China so we believe these activities are supported by PLA even though we don't have any evidence".

    Can you actually refute what the Mandiant Report said (after you read it, that is)?

    The Mandiant Report is not the sole source of evidence for hacking by China or PLA, I would say.

    But let's keep the thread going as the story develops.
