China 0

kierny (102954) writes "Chinese APT attacks are the information security version of the Kardashians: Quick to gain news attention, but otherwise vapid, says John Pescatore, director of emerging security at the SANS Institute. Cue hype over "the Chinese are coming!":

Clearly, the panic button has been pushed. But as happens too often with outbreaks of sudden or uncontrolled anxiety, it misses the point: Don't worry about China. Worry instead if the pitiful state of your information security defenses will allow any attacker to wield nothing more than malicious email attachments to steal valuable intellectual property or even state secrets.
