Titan Rain

Old and yet still current news. While we’re being guided to look very almost closely at Russia, a far more dedicated and successful cyber enemy taking advantage.

“[Shawn] Carpenter had uncovered Titan Rain – the biggest cyber espionage campaign in history, and part of a programme which allowed China to plunder priceless military and commercial secrets from the West.

Special units of the People’s Liberation Army stole secrets ranging from America’s stealth bomber blueprints and Coca-Cola’s business strategy to British Government briefings and BP geological reports.

Newly installed Emperor Xi invested heavily in the PLA’s newest arm, and is now the dominant superpower on a battlefield we’re still discovering exists. Of course, we were warned. Have to admit – this battlefield is certainly more comfortable than our own Army’s standard of living. Emperor Xi still engages in old-fashioned spying though. Good on VMI for paying attention.
