The Chinese military hacked into a Pentagon computer network in June in the most successful cyber attack on the US defence department, say American _officials.

The Pentagon acknowledged shutting down part of a computer system serving the office of Robert Gates, defence secretary, but declined to say who it believed was behind the attack.

Current and former officials have told the Financial Times an internal investigation has revealed that the incursion came from the People’s Liberation Army.

One senior US official said the Pentagon had pinpointed the exact origins of the attack. Another person familiar with the event said there was a “very high level of confidence...trending towards total certainty” that the PLA was responsible. The defence ministry in Beijing declined to comment on Monday.

Yea our security is so great. Just shows how defenseless we can be.

Umm no thats bad that and
If they hack into our government that could be an act of war so which we could be quite in over our heads...

Anyway I hope our governments can work this out peacefully
 
Now is about the time were we all turn emo, since Azns make us look dumb and all it's useless, they got pandas on their side,
 
I'm thinking China will start a war soon... With all the bad food, poison in toothpaste, faulty products, and now this... yup.
 
A war of what kind lol? We have not much interest in proxy combat against another power these days, and total war between two nuclear powers is just plain out of the question.

Actually, I agree. I have very nasty feelings toward China now a days. If there was a draft, I wouldn't dodge.

I just happened to see this, and dicided to post it.

China denies hacking the Pentagon


China today dismissed accusations that its military had hacked into Pentagon computers, calling the claim "cold war" thinking.

The robust Chinese response followed a front-page report in the Financial Times saying Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) hackers broke into a US defence department network in June, taking data and causing the shutdown of a system serving the secretary of defence, Robert Gates.

No matter what the truth, a matter like this shouldn't come up. There should be no people either 'Faking' this, nor people, 'Denying' this, which proves someone has a grudge or some sort of issue.
 
Lets prepare, I bet the 2012 end of the world thing will be WWIII
YOUR RIGHT! The Chinese will send out so many poisenous toys that it will kill everyone!

Really... World War 3.... The U.S. could still win conventional wars even with the army tied up in Iraq.

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done

  • The Helper The Helper:
    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
