Chinese hackers snuffled spy-plane deal

Broke into the South Korean military
Chinese computer hackers hacked South Korean military files on a planned spy plane purchase from the United States. Shin Hak-Yong, an opposition Democratic Party lawmaker and a member of parliament's defence committee  has revealed that the hackers accessed information in defence ministry computers on the plan to buy unmanned Global Hawk aircraft.

Speaking to the  Chosun Ilbo newspaper Hak-Yong said the the government has not raised the issue with China yet and is still debating how to handle it. Seoul wrote a $40.4 million cheque for the spy plane following the North's alleged attack on a South Korean warship that left 46 sailors dead in March 2010.

China is a bit spooked by the spyplane, which is also likely to be flogged to Japan. It fears the neighbouring nations could keep watch over its territory.
