Chinese hackers have stolen confidential US anti-missile data
Data on US missile defense systems have been stolen by Chinese hackers – the Washington Post reported Tuesday. In Australia, the media report similar cyberattacks. Stolen data is important for the security of both countries.
Cyberslides have managed to steal secret construction plans or their elements, America’s most technologically advanced US missile defense systems Patriot PAC-3, THAAD, or Aegis, according to the Pentagon’s expert report, citing “WP”.
Data on F-35 and F / A-18 fighter jets, the V-22 Osprey multi-purpose vertical launch and landing aircraft, and the Black Hawk helicopter were also stolen, the Washington daily said.
Experts warn that such data obtained by Chinese intelligence can give you a colossal strategic advantage and at the same time undermine the US military superiority in the event of armed conflict.
High-ranking Pentagon officers who commented anonymously report that the acquisition of anti-missile defense data is part of Beijing’s extensive and intensified spying on not only American military structures but also Pentecostal civilian companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Northrop Grumman – writes “WP”. The newspaper adds that none of the companies commented on the report, stating that some of the information was stolen from their computer systems.
Hackers treat private companies working for the Pentagon as a weak link in the security system. “In many cases, these companies do not know they have been attacked by hackers until the FBI has knocked on their doors,” he said in a high-profile Washington Post interview.
In Australia ABC television reported Monday that Chinese hackers have stolen confidential plans to build a future Australian intelligence headquarters. On Tuesday the authorities refused to comment on this information, but they were not denied.
As explained by ABC’s cyber-security expert Des Ball, the acquisition of future intelligence headquarters plans, including details such as computer network information, makes the building exceptionally vulnerable to cyber-bullying or spy surveillance.
The Chinese challenge Tesla Motors
The Chinese company LeEco, known primarily for its TVs and smartphones, has decided to look at a completely new field for itself and show its first electric project. The product called LeSEE is not only electric and futuristic but also autonomous.
The Chinese have copied automotive solutions from Western companies over the years, but like many other businesses, they are now beginning to use their knowledge to create their own projects. One of the newest LeSEE concept cars is the LeSEE concept, which has been specializing in RTV equipment and mobile devices.
Leeco wants to challenge Tesla Motors, so the first conceptual model is not only electrically driven but also fully autonomous. Auto was presented to the public at a conference in China where he was shown how to drive fully alone by leaving the voice command from the special container where it was delivered to the stage. Although autonomic speed is not great, cars can even reverse.
The vehicle has a counter-opening door and its interior is extremely futuristic and filled with LCDs. The manufacturer also ensures that the vehicle has a facial recognition system and the ability to learn.
An interesting thing is the road lighting system, which differs significantly from traditional headlamps. Its function is a strip of lanyard extending throughout the front of the car, which consists of different sections and can function as traditional headlamps, direction indicators and fog lamps.
