Chinese Military Denies Hacking New York Times

Posted by on Wed, Feb 20, 2013 at 7:59 AM

In a front page article on the New York Times website, the Chinese military strongly denies hacking the New York Times and other US businesses:

A day later, the U.S. security company accused the People's Liberation Army units engaged in the network warfare of businesses, organizations and government agencies in the United States, the Chinese Defense Ministry issued a strong denial, and insisted that the report is flawed.

In press conference held in Beijing on Wednesday, the allegations put forward by the Ministry of Industry and the destructive, Mandiant, the computer security company in the United States, this is a challenge. The report points out that the PLA unit 61398 Shanghai as one of the world's most radical computer hacker operation.

Chinese army never support any hacker activity, Defense Ministry spokesman Geng Yansheng said at news conference: "Claims, the Chinese military the Mandiant company engaged in cyber espionage is not on the basis of the facts."

Huh. Well I'm convinced.

Jesus, was the block quote manually retyped? The NYT is by no means immune to copy edit fails, but it's hard to believe something that thoroughly riddled with obvious typos and word and phrase omissions would have ever gone live.

(Needless to say, the NYT article text as currently posted doesn't match the quote in the Slog post.)

And then, we read the story below:…

But then. . . . .events become murkier as we look deep into the backgrounds of the company which published that report, Mandiant.

Jody Gassow, member of Board of Directors, is the managing director of One Equity Partners, which is the private equity firm of none other than.... JP Morgan Chase.

Good Harbor Consulting, partner. Headed by our good friend Richard Clarke.…

So those involved with promoting, and actually doing, the offshoring of jobs, technology and investment to China, now want to foment war with China??????

I'm confused.....or is there an underlying agenda we aren't aware of?

Of course they deny it.

The connection logs show it was them.

As does the monitoring software we installed in the chipsets of all their printers.

Of course the Chinese Army isn't doing the hacking. They contract that stuff out, like everyone else.

This is the just the newest gambit in a very old game. I'd really be interested in knowing how much the USA is hacking and probing Chinese institutions. Because we obviously are.

The silence of the Chinese on this issue tells me we are hitting them and leaving little evidence, or we are hitting them and the government refuses to acknowledge their inability to stop us.
