It doesn’t matter what day it is, year, or who the alleged perpetrator is, some constants will always remain true when it comes to reports about foreign cyber threats (especially those attributed to a State entity): At no point will any serious effort be made to draw alternative conclusions from the data provided. At no point will any attempt be made to put the hack-of-the-day/week/month in historical context. At no point will a serious, information-age approach to the problem be proffered. The latest report about alleged Chinese state-sponsored cyber espionage, and the hype surrounding it, is no different. China is the boogie man, they’ve got a lock on every bit that leaves their country, they’re responsible for the “greatest transfer of wealth in history,” and we must apply the might of our military-industrial-congressional complex to combat this evil.  Link: Haft of the Spear
