A November 2011 Report to Congress has revealed that two NASA satellites were hijacked by Chinese officials, one of them being totally controlled for an aggregate period of 11 minutes.
The US didn't seem to care much about the hack. Sure they mentioned in was a breach but what action are they going to take? Guess on the other hand they can't point fingers since the evidence is not firm enough.
That and they probably do the same shit to the Chinese. lol
A NASA satellite you say? Did China want to see a close up of Uranus?
You can't blame them, we probably have control of a lot of their things 24/7.
Doubtful, China are way ahead of the United States in terms of cyber warfare.
What do you base this off? Do people really think they know what governments are capable of these days?
That is the most absurd thing I have ever heard. The US is like 5x ahead of everybody in cyber warfare. China don't have shite compared to what the US does in this category. We invented computers not China dude.
Inventing something doesn't mean you are infinitely ahead of the curve, blink and its already been improved and adapted by someone else.
Apple introduce the touchscreen phone to the masses, in my eyes HTC and Samsung are now panning them by developing the idea further.
Take a look at the games console market over the past hmmmm 20-25 years. One thing I can tell you, it wasn't the US developing the leading consoles. F*ck, they didn't even enter the market till a few years ago.
With a blind comment like that you MUST be American.
but CERN created the internet, So I guess the Swiss must be the best at hacking right swinesucker?
luckily China has Americas money, they are safe for now...
naah just scanning it. they just want copy it, thats all.
Not at this time. The US simply can't afford it.
So are you saying that chine can bully USA whenever they want to?.. Just asking..
To go to war over a terrain satellite would make no sense. I'm pretty sure they do wrong to each other ALL the time in different ways. Plus with the US recently pulling out of wars in Iraq and other countries (and given the massive debt crisis), it wouldn't make the best of sense. Only if there was a very serious threat would they decide to go to war. I can't speak about the Chinese' state of defenses, but right now they have the money to fund a war...
the us always have money for war but not for a nhs. It's quite disheartening that people there have to pay thousands of dollars for care(some surgeries can cost over a 100k)
China cannot afford it. They NEED the USA. If the USA was not around then who would buy all of the stuff made in china?
I don't know what you guys are talking about, because China's economy is booming right about now. They're pretty much on the way to becoming the new #1 super power in the world. Even though sustaining that might be another question.
just curious, how exactly us can win a war with china? the only way to win is to use nuclear
This kind of hacking is not going to go away, it is going to get worse as they probe United States defences and see just how far they can push the USA before some sort of action is taken. The Chinese forces are incomplete, they still lack a blue water navy to project power. However this is being built with a view that China is almost certainly the next military superpower. By 2016 China could have 2 new heavy carriers in operation to go along with the newly refitted heavy ex-soviet carrier they now possess that will probably enter service sometime next year. This could cause a major interruption in the way the United States projects its power around Taiwanese waters.
Almost certainly going to cause problems as it should. We really have no business over there.
What he said ----> Racer-X , China could rape us at any time they wanted lol
naw, they are garbage, they can't do anything with miliatry cause it's made in china and econically, they are never recession proof! They are now in brink of corruption and debt rise! If that happens it will be broken, while USA runs by people with democrats way (innovative)
USA runs by people with democrats way (innovative) - that makes me laugh
Just lol the people in american government have been known for some time to take bribes to vote and act in the way corporations want them to. (Each key member of the bush administration was paid over 200k and bush was paid over 800k to pass a bill that allowed the pharmaceutical companies to charge whatever they wanted for medicine) Remember when obama was given a nobel peace prize for discussing the possibility of a nuclear disarmament? and nothing happened he said that he was going to get american troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan and now there are more and even more drone attacks on innocents. The land of the free right? look at the occupy movements and the police attack war vets elderly people and students soo cavalierly.
War with China wouldn't be wise China being a nuclear power. Also note that China is pretty much keeping the US standing.
The chinese will be so heavily in debt and inflation when living standards raise it is not going to be even funny. When people just start, not totally, to stop buying their products even the tiniest bit it will hurt them hard. The money markets are manipulated by the central banks. No one nation really keeps anybody afloat as they are all tangled in the mass.
Yeah, China is givin US so cheap loans that when is comes to paying those back, inflation has already eaten so much that US actually pays less back. China keeps pushing it's currency down and that may eventually be the end of it.
um not sure you know how debt is created. Inflation can be a problem for China but Chinese people in general stay away from using credit fact. So Swine you are wrong
China is just displaying their true power. They are not intimidated by the US government and their military drills over the yellow sea. The missile shot off the California coast was another display.
"The missile shot off the California coast was another display." I thought that was N.Korea
I thought it was martians
apple, microsoft enough said. we control everything and make cool things.
