There is huge strain currently being felt between the governments of the United States and China. Cyber attacks are not helping.

Former Congressman Mike Rogers began shouting from the roof top a few years back about the threat of cyber attacks from China as well as from other countries— claiming this was a national security issue for the U.S.

“The sky is falling, the sky is falling” cried Chicken Little. Yet, it appears the former congressman was right.

Recently, experts claimed Chinese-backed hackers broke into U.S. government computers, potentially compromising the personal data of 4 million current and former federal employees. China strongly rejects this charge.

Seems there is a great deal of overly sensitive diplomatic speak in the U.S. about who is responsible for the attacks, but all signs point to China. Officials close to the investigation say there is little doubt China is behind the attack.
