    I have noticed when China or Russia do this sort of thing its a terrible crime but with some others its intelligence gathering, wasnt it the Netanyahu that not so long back appeared waving a big handful of stolen documents.

    The problem is that the Chinese and Russians haven't got anything worth nicking, because it's all stuff they've nicked from the West.

    Then why is the US flying spy planes around Russia and China if there is nothing there worth seeing.

    [too] Many remain blind, deaf and dumb by wrapping most everything in a cultural-patriotic covering.

    The unrecognized dumbing down continues.

    At least they (US) could hack the spacecraft carrier technique from the Russians - when they no longer have von Braun - then no need to make the booking at Baikonur.

    I know you are not a complete fool Harry heck nobodys perfect but you dont seem to be able to understand that China is being accused of spying which remains spying no matter who does it or which technique is used.

    We collect intelligence data, we do not spy. Same as we do not torture...

    I'd be embarrassed that 614gb of traffic was sent out of their network without them noticing, let alone the hack.

    Maybe they're a bit sensitive at the moment....


    A federal jury convicted former CIA covert case officer Kevin Patrick Mallory of espionage Friday for transmitting classified documents to a Chinese intelligence officer.
    “It is a sad day when an American citizen is convicted of spying on behalf of a foreign power,” Assistant Attorney General John Demers said of the conviction. “This act of espionage was no isolated incident. The People's Republic of China has made a sophisticated and concerted effort to steal our nation's secrets."


    "Today's conviction demonstrates that we remain vigilant against this threat and hold accountable all those who put the United States at risk through espionage.”


    The Justice Department noted that Mallory's action posed a "serious threat to U.S. national security."


    According to the Justice Department, Mallory was convicted of conspiracy to deliver, attempted delivery, delivery of defense information to aid a foreign government, and making material false statements in regard to meetings and communications he had with a Chinese intelligence officer in 2017.


    He first made contact with the officer in the spring of 2017 when he traveled to Shanghai, during which he turned over certain classified documents. During a voluntary interview with FBI agents, Mallory said the officer claimed to be working for the People's Republic of China.


    Mallory also was given a covert communications device, manufactured by Samsung, through which he continued to communicate with and transmit documents to the Chinese intelligence official. Upon a review of the device, FBI officials discovered a message in which he stated he could return to Shanghai in June 2017 to "bring the remainder of the documents." The FBI determined Mallory had attempted to hand over eight documents, four of which he successfully transmitted via the covcom device. Two of the documents contained secret information and one contained top secret information.


    He is facing a maximum sentence of life in prison.

    ~ You do realize, of course, that you have now trekked ^ far beyond the average level of cognitive perception, especially on the TD platform, eh?
