Pentagon sources confirm to Fox News the Chinese hackers have gained access to the designs of more than two dozen of the nation's most advanced military weapons.
As the Washington Post first reported those weapons include our patriot missile defense system the FA eighteen fighter jet the V 22 off spray.
And the Blackhawk helicopter.
The post article cites a confidential section of the study that a group of government and civilian experts prepared for the -- -- back in January.
The White House today said cyber security will be a major topic of discussion when President Obama meets with China's president next week in California.
JD Barnett is a partner and co chair of cyber security at a major US law firm he is also a former rear admiral.
In the Canadian admiral it's vote no savored the Chinese have been -- us for a long time this seems to be.
How much -- wider campaign of espionage -- and likely more dangerous.
-- successfully unprecedented the list that you mentioned there is appalling it endangers.
And it endangers US troops.
It is it the fact the Pentagon can't -- this admirals up the problem mean -- to me that -- -- a little scary talk about Chinese getting some of our vital information you know North Korea is always right on the edge going profit off the cliff.
Ed and now you have reports there's a possibility the Pentagon can't -- this.
We know interestingly our military those systems are pretty well protected they haven't always been what we've learned -- protected them.
What the Chinese did in response to start attacking.
The periphery the contractors and even the subcontractors.
That we depend on -- these various systems and they've been fairly successful -- and all of these.
These folks are are very careful they've got CIO's in chief information security officers.
And in any bars but the fact the matter is that they're still getting through.
So we've got to do a better job because we've exposed.
In essence our defense systems to them.
And -- only that we've given them a tremendous advantage against us about by providing them.
Billions maybe even trillions dollars worth over -- that they don't have to do because they are on -- -- intellectual reasons and that's the whole thing -- you talk about President Obama meeting with president Jean -- next week.
-- -- in two weeks and you think well how do you broach the subject take quick steal our stuff anyway.
What's what's the question you ask.
-- -- two things first you've seen over the last few -- say an increasing number of public disclosures.
That the Chinese as being the ones that have been behind us in the past the Chinese have simply said you can't attribute to us with the -- -- report back in in two then in February.
With the yeah pentagon reported now with this defense science board report you see it ratcheting it up so that -- release -- the basis for saying you can't get out of this in the public perception the Chinese are actually doing it.
But we have to do more than just the diplomatic thing to do we have to be able to provide.
More things for our our defense industry to be able to to protect themselves.
Yeah -- -- -- in the Pentagon.
