Chinese Hackers Infiltrate US Army Database, Compromise Safety Of Thousands Of Dams

From January to April, an unauthorized individual traced back to China accessed the US Army Corps of Engineers’ National Inventory of Dams, raising concerns over their safety. With such data, launching a cyberattack against the American powergrid appears feasible, and would cause considerable damage for the United States.
