Red China has been hacking the USA government since 1998, the year China was given 'Most Favored Nation' status. 1998 was the year the roots of China's government hacking gathered together and formed 'The Red Hacker Alliance'. It used to be that the Red Chinese government denied paying The Red Hacker Alliance for its services. These days TRHA has simply been integrated directly into the Chinese government. They no longer operate as in independent entity.
The USA government was forced to admit China's activity in 2007 after the public was informed that government Windows OS computers connected to the Internet had been infected with bot malware that was feeding ALL available USA government documents directly to China. An internal Chinese memo was also uncovered around that time which declared a cyber war against the USA.
And now we get to read that McAfee figured out, here in 2011, that Red China has been hacking the USA for the last five years. Incredible DUH Factor:
Travel back to some of my earliest posts in this blog for more about the history of Red China's declared Cyber War against the USA. Here's a relevant article from 2006, five years ago:
Here's a link to a post I made over at Soft32.com's Mac forum on May 31, 2007:
As I quoted from the SANS Institute's NewsBites newsletter, Volume 9, Number 43:
--DoD Report: China Bolstering Cyber Warfare Capabilities (May 28 & 29, 2007)
China "has established information warfare units to develop viruses to attack enemy computer systems and networks, and tactics and measures to protect friendly computer systems and networks," according to a recent report from the US Defense Department (DoD). In previous years, the Pentagon's annual report to Congress on China's military power has indicated that China was focusing on defensive measures, so the shift to offensive tactics merits attention.
So where have you been for five years McAfee? And why does the tech press think McAfee's late revelation is news?
Here are a further few China cyber war articles from way back when:

CONCLUSION: Think about Red China screwing over the USA as well as the rest of the world the next time you buy cheap stuff 'Made In China'. Wonder why the USA still provides Red China with 'Most Favored Nation' status considering the fact that China has declared war against us. Think about the motives of the traitorous Corporate Oligarchy that really rules the USA government.
