A Chinese businessman was found guilty of being involved in burglary US defense computer networks, including Boeing.
In an official statement the US Department of Justice stated that the man named Su Bin (50). He threatened to get a maximum sentence of five years for allegedly conspiring with two others in China to obtain sensitive military information relating to legal exports.
Su Bin lawyer, Robert Anello said, in resolving this issue, Su Bin wished to remain viable. Based on the information the US government court filing, Su began targeting US companies since 2008. In 2010, he sent an email with a file to someone who does not know his name in Chinese.
The email contains information regarding the number of US military aircraft Boeing C-17. Su also assisted by other conspirators in determining which companies are being targeted.
In addition, he translated the document from English into Chinese. He was arrested in Canada in 2014 ago.
Su then approved a US extradition. Earlier, the Canadian media reported last January, two members of the Chinese military soldiers conspired with Su to get a blueprint of F-35 aircraft and other jets.
At that time, a spokesman for China’s Foreign Minister said that the Chinese government opposes and has never been involved with any hacking activity on the internet. Meanwhile, the Boeing leave it entirely to the US government.
“We are cooperating fully with the government in the legal process. We welcome the development of this case,” said Boeing spokesman Todd Blecher. Sentencing was scheduled for July 13, 2016.
