Submission + - China Hacks Congressional Computers (thehill.com)

OctaviusIII writes: Anyone that has visted Capitol Hill knows that its being kept more and more like a fortress, what with the cameras, constant checkpoints, and closed streets. Apparently this does not apply to Congress's computers, which have reportedly been hacked multiple times from points within China. The targets were the computers of three prominent critics of China's human rights record, Reps. Frank Wolf, Chris Smith and Mark Kirk, all Republicans. The stolen information was reportedly related to human rights activists in the United States and China.

The story is also running in AP.
