MitmWatcher (666) writes "The People's Liberation Army (PLA) continues to build cyberwarfare units and develop viruses to attack enemy computer systems as part of its information-warfare strategy, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) warned in a report released on Friday.

At the same, Chinese armed forces are developing ways to protect its own systems from an enemy attack, it said, echoing similar warnings made in previous years. http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,132284-pg,1/arti cle.html(News) http://www.defenselink.mil/pubs/pdfs/070523-China- Military-Power-final.pdf(Report)"
