China Steals More Military Secrets

The Daily Mail reports that Chinese hackers (the Chinese government is hiding behind plausible deniability) have stolen numerous plans for advanced military weapons and systems. The article states:
Chinese hackers have accessed designs for more than two dozen U.S. weapons systems and stolen the blueprints for Australia's new spy headquarters which hasn't even been opened yet.  
These latest strikes come after months of numerous computer security breaches involving Chinese hackers as the ongoing cyber war between China and the West intensifies.  
Hackers have now 'compromised' U.S. designs for combat aircraft and ships, as well as missile defenses vital for Europe, Asia and the Gulf, it has emerged. 
The Washington Post learned of the breach from a Pentagon report prepared for the Defense Department by the Defense Science Board. 
Among the weapons listed in the report were the advanced Patriot missile system, the Navy's Aegis ballistic missile defense systems, the F/A-18 fighter jet, the V-22 Osprey, the Black Hawk helicopter and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
