pdonyinaat January 23,2016 Number of the high-profile network intrusions are linked to china. They organize hacker networks, that educate their members on computer attacks and intrusion techniques
tcmahonyat January 24,2016 What was most interesting about this piece was the fact that Chinese hackers were into hacking more for patriotism and China as a county as opposed to hackers in the US being more against the government. However I cannot imagine this being the case for all hackers in China given the "great firewall" of China and the amount of censorship in that region. Additionally I would add its interesting how he admitted he has hacked the white house previously. Either there is no evidence that can tie him to the specific crime or it is extremely difficult to bring charges against someone for that type of crime (which seems to be more likely).
BrianDaugetteat January 25,2016 While interesting, I think this video misses the mark a bit. The problem hackers in China aren't people like the interviewee, but as Mandiant points out in their APT 1 report, it's China's military service. A US equivalent to this news story would be like CNN doing a story on the United States' cyberwarfare capability, but interviewing American security researchers instead of the NSA.
A number of the statements from the interviewees sound like Chinese Government talking points, rather than a true assessment of what is going on with regards to Chinese hacking against US based victims. This report would have been better if it was longer and the journalist had more time to dive deeper into the issue, and if the journalist would have focused on China's state-sponsored actors, rather than their "patriotic hackers".
fraudcankillat January 25,2016 According to Juan, there is no evidence China is behind any hacks. Juan is misinformed. China supposedly arrested some of the folks involved in the recent breach of OPM records. This may be the pessimist in me, but I don't think we'll fully understand the damages caused by the OPM hack for another 15-20 years, when the current generation of young adults become bribe-able leaders in the government and private sector. We have no idea how devastating these hacks can be.
haneenat February 02,2016 I always wanted to be a hacker, a good hacker... and good hackers who work for companies to discover its network weaknesses are well payed.
Even some government don't recognize these skills and others, sometimes people like him turn the table over and play against the ones who didn't recognize him. Then the other group can't control them.. its bad for both sides, the government who did't take advantage from such a skill, and the hackers who should invest in themselves in another good way... As hearing NO from an employer means N:Neaxt, O:Opportunity....
