Operation Shady Rat
#1
"Operation Shady Rat. Sustained, silent, IP theft from 70 organizations across 14 countries. More. What we have witnessed over the past five to six years has been nothing short of a historically unprecedented transfer of wealth  closely guarded national secrets (including from classified government networks), source code, bug databases, email archives, negotiation plans and exploration details for new oil and gas field auctions, document stores, legal contracts, SCADA configurations, design schematics and much more has "fallen off the truck" of numerous, mostly Western companies and disappeared in the ever-growing electronic archives of dogged adversaries."

Racist tosh.

From the Vanity Fair article:

Quote:One leading cyber-espionage expert, however, thinks the likely culprit's identity is clear. "All the signs point to China," says James A. Lewis, director and senior fellow of the Technology and Public Policy Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, adding, "Who else spies on Taiwan?"

Psyops Central: let's blame the Chinese for all the hacking. We need a sexy title that Fox 'n Friends will love. I know, let's call it "Shady Rat".

Psyops Jr: yeah, cool, and let's make out like the Free World never hacks into computers and steals stuff.

Psyops Central: everyone knows that only shady rats, with gook eyes, do industrial espionage. Free market capitalism rules! MSM'll lap it up!
