Government computers hacked by suspected Chinese Hackers…again.

Being a person who works in computers and a big news junkie, I love stories like this. The LA Times, and several other news agencies, have reported that they believe that congressional computers were attacked and files were copied. As the Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.), said "They got everything…". Rep. Wolf, whose office had four computers affected, said that other members of Congress were also targeted, as well as at least one congressional committee.

This same type of thing happened a few years ago. Though it was reported that no National secrets were taken last time, some websites reported that the information that was copied held lists of Chinese dissidents and political contacts. I wonder what happened to those people on the lists? Gotta love politics.
