    Just read that Rolls Royce and Shell in the UK have been subject to sustained Chinese Military (so extremely organised and seemingly a nationally sponsored operation, not juts a few kids) espionage internet attacks.

    They were trying to get their hands on Rolls Royce Gas Turbine engine designs as well as Shell scecrets.

    Thing is the chinese can't even make safe toys so why would anyone dare fly in a plane powered by their rip off engines.

    If you are an IT security person be aware, just hope apple are well covered.

    The chinese are not doing their countries image any help, but I think they don't care.

    They want their cake and eat it too, how do the chinese authorities really think they can gain the respect they so dearly want from the world when they do this sort of thing?
