WIKILEAKS: Private Intelligence Firm Emails Detail Chinese Hacking against the United States

Wikileaks just released a new cache of emails, this time from a Private Intelligence Firm! There are some interesting reads in the latest data dump, which shouldn’t be missed.

In this particular email exchange we see members of HBGary discussing Israel and the United States working together on the Stuxnet worm to take down Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

In this email, dated February 22nd 2010 the firm discusses Chinese state sponsored hacking endeavors targeting Google. Apparently, Hillary Clinton asked the Chinese government to conduct a probe. We can see that went nowhere.

Here we see some hard evidence concerning China’s attempt to corner the energy production and fossil fuel extraction market. This email is dated January 11th, 2011 and catalogues some of the acquisitions and exploits the Chinese government had managed to achieve. This actually confirms some of the claims Alex Jones of InfoWars has made in the past concerning China’s control over the worlds rare earth mineral extraction rights.

We can see that China’s hackers have been hard at work conducting industrial espionage against American energy companies.

China likes using “Honey Trap” spies.

This is not from the latest email dump however it is interesting in the context of this collection of information provided.
US-China Economic and Security Review Commission Report 2016
Very interesting read you should check out, this is a report that is presented to congress.

In this email dated January 29th 2011, we see just how these types of Private Intelligence Firms can get their hands on information you wouldn’t even be able to fathom. Very interesting read even though it is a short email. It would seem that they were tracking a Chinese state sponsored Hacker.

This is just a list of some of the emails I’ve found in my first search through the stockpile of emails.
