    To me this just shows that we need much tighter regulations on what these companies can collect and store and how long they can keep it.

    Huh, I've got to say, I did not expect that it was a foreign government behind a credit agency hack. Fascinating.

      I was reading a sysadmin thread and had the same realization. https://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/f1bkvt/corpcom_is_being_sold_thousands_of_systems_around/fh6c7k1/ he had the domain it.com and it was receiving information it really shouldn't be seeing at all.

      Scary to think that all it would take is a hasty sale by someone not thinking twice, it expiring, or whatever else then there's a huge vector for leaked (well, broadcasted) info.

    I suggest anybody who sees this click on the link that says "Download Wu Zhiyong Indictment" and actually read the indictment. It seems that they've indicted some foreign military personnel who were obviously not present for the indictment and for whom they only have blurry photographs of, for things occuring during "exact dates unknown to the court of Georgia". These people have likely never stepped foot in the US, how the hell is this ever going actually go to court. Even if it does go to court what they gonna do, fly out a bunch more PLA to serve as a jury of their peers? Is some random judge in Bumblef*&k, Georgia going to preside over an international espionage case? Even North Korea waits until they actually have somebody in custody before making them appear in a kangaroo court.
