According to the Russian military news network reported on November 9, the U.S. Congress US-China Economic and Security Review Commission hearing recently in a secret draft report that the Chinese computer hackers have had a few years by the ground station in Norway, four short-term control of the invasion and the U.S. government satellites.
draft report, the U.S. Congress (the official report will be disclosed in November) pointed out that despite the invasion of the United States satellites were mainly used for meteorological and topographic mapping data, non-confidential research, but the satellite program invasion of the fact itself indicates that this is a new danger and attacks. This will pose a threat to the United States, especially in their attacks directed at the implementation of important strategic task of the satellites. After the invasion of satellite control systems, hackers can manipulate the satellite, or even destroy them. Moreover, the attacker can manipulate the secret satellite data, to be rightful owner after the distortion data tampering.
report to Congress, according to information provided by U.S. earth remote sensing satellite “Landsat VII” (Landsat-7) of the 2007 and 2008, a victim of hacker attacks, malicious intruders was more than the actual control of the satellite for 12 minutes. The United States “TerraAM-1″ satellite hackers hijacked twice been the same, namely, in June 2008 and October 2009. The first hackers control only 2 minutes and the second more than nine minutes. But the draft report did not mention the actual control of hackers have done in the end, after the United States satellites. The United States claims, attacked two satellites by NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey in Norway through the Spitsbergen archipelago on the joint control of the ground receiving station. Hackers hijacked a Norwegian invasion of industrial control systems, then after the necessary data to ground stations. NASA recognized that in order to facilitate the transmission of satellite data, including Norway and the United States often used in other countries, including Australia, the ground station.
Russian media said the U.S. intelligence agencies have been very active in the use of communications satellites to collect intelligence information, to engage in other actions. U.S. Congress, the report did not directly accuse Chinese officials, Chinese authorities did not specify funding a similar hacking. But claimed that similar behavior fully consistent with the current Chinese military doctrine. The latter provides that once the war started, one of the measures is to capture the enemy’s first satellite and ground satellite control infrastructure.
Russian media said the recent 5-6 years, the U.S. government accused China of planning attacks blindly, undermining Western computer networks in an attempt to steal Western military, technological and commercial secrets. However, the U.S. has failed to seize the hackers to launch similar attacks. China has always denied any involvement in similar action. Pentagon admits, does not yet have mastered any direct evidence. U.S. military experts said that China is the militarization of hacker detachment in about 10 years ago, the main stream of attacks from hackers, scattered groups, they attempted to steal information, and then sell in order to obtain economic benefits. Pentagon official information that the U.S. military network in 2001 suffered 3651 attacks, in 2009 to 71 661 times, reaching 55,812 times last year, this year is estimated to be 55,100 times.
In recent years, the Chinese government has firmly rejected accusations related to the U.S. and Europe, denied any involvement in hacking attacks. Chinese Foreign Ministry official spokesman has reiterated that the U.S. accusations purely fabricated, there is no basis in fact. The related report of the U.S. Congress, “out of nothing, with ulterior motives, is not worth refuting.” China believes that the main purpose of the U.S. action is similar to discredit, vilify China’s international image.
