China + Phishing = Oakridge Breach?

China has been rumored to be behind the hacking of US infrastructure for years and now it appears they gained access to a very high profile network at Oakridge National Laboratory.

Previous news reports suggested they compromised computers and stolen information from various DoD installations, NASA networks, and various other organizations around the world.

This latest attacksounds familiar, company X is targeted and gets flooded with phishing emails then one unsuspecting user clicks the link which unlocks the door from the inside. GOTCHA! I am not sure how you say that in Chinese, but it probably sounds a lot like SCHWING!!!
