    This is why you shouldn't use an anti-virus application with a massive market share. It barely picks up viruses made by intelligent hackers.

    Lol a newspaper would over exaggerate on who hacked them, but damn if its true that's crazy, you would think the finances of a prime minister of china would already be well known.... to bad the lack of caution on the new yorks times part likely resulted in the imprisonment or death of anyone in china who gave them information. If this is indeed true.

    China is so shady, but I am no surprised. The United states does it as well although they do it for other reason.

    Someday soon after all the guns are confiscated by robot terminators, all our electronics are going to self destruct and we'll be enslaved in FEMA camps while China sets up shop in the new Peoples Republic of America. *drinks some kool-aid*

    I think the Chinese just wanted some good ideas on maintaining gun control, so they looked to New York as they know how good they are at destroying the second amendment.

    China's government is far form "open" about its true finances they claim a debt in the hundred billions, most financial experts have said there's no possible way that's true and some put there actual debt between 4-6 trillion (us dollar). I also hope any information the Chinese may have obtained doesn't lead to deaths in China.

    Why am I not surprised at the arrogance of China?? They treat their own ppl like dirt and expect everyone to swallow the BS line that they are progressive. I remember reading a great book in highschool. It was "The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buckman. It really gives you an incredibly deep insight into how China and its govt treat their own citizens. I feel very sorry for the ppl of China. If you are not the eliet upper class you have the misfortune of being born chinese and must suffer for their countries greed. This is just another instance of Chinas greed and arrogance.
