WSJ and NYT Hacked By The Chinese

What's up with all these reports of the Chinese trying to hack everyone? Hmmm, maybe they weren't hacking, maybe they were just trying to avoid paying subscription fees just to read a news story. big grin

The Wall Street Journal said its computer systems had been infiltrated by Chinese hackers for the apparent purpose of monitoring the newspaper's China coverage. The infiltration at the Journal, along with reports of computer network breaches at the New York Times NYT and other news outlets, indicate that Chinese spying on U.S. media has become a widespread phenomenon.
