Aussie businesses targeted in global hacking campaign

The federal government says it has serious concerns after Australian business were targeted in a Chinese hacking campaign, aimed at stealing intellectual property.

Two Chinese nationals have been charged in the US over their alleged membership of a hacking group operating in China known as Advanced Persistent Threat 10 (APT10).

The group allegedly targeted companies and government agencies in at least a dozen countries and gave China's intelligence service access to intellectual property and other sensitive business information.

A joint statement from Foreign Affairs Minister Marise Payne and Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said APT10 was acting on behalf of the Chinese Ministry of State Security and the group's "sustained cyber intrusions" were significant.

They focused on large-scale managed service providers – companies that manage IT services and infrastructure for medium-to-large businesses and organisations – both in Australia and globally, the ministers said.

"Australia calls on all countries – including China – to uphold commitments to refrain from cyber-enabled theft of intellectual property, trade secrets and confidential business information with the intent of obtaining a competitive advantage," they said in the statement, issued early on Friday.

The statement added that the security compromise was a reminder to all organisations to be vigilant, and directed Australian organisations to the government's cyber security information website www.cyber.gov.au for advice.

Of course industrial espionage goes on. But I bet you it has nowt to do with blue prints and secret formulas.

That is just cold war paranoia rubbish.

Consider the repeated use of the term 'theft of intellectual property'. What a load of codswallop.

Imagine I invented a super simple electric component that doubled the millage of an electric car. How do I protect the idea so I can make money from it? After all, If I made it, and sold it, what stops somebody from buying it and reverse engineering it? Then they can copy it and sell it cheaper.

Patents. And patents are published. They have to be published, because otherwise there is nothing to say you had the idea first.

All these billion dollar battles between Samsung and Apple are not about stealing each others IP. It's about how the patent is interpreted, is the patent valid (prior art etc). After all, it is possible for 2 companies to have the same idea, the battle then is to protect prior art and get the patent application in and published before the other company.

In a court of law, prior art is easy to prove. Emails, CAD models, sketches etc with dates.

I cant recall any recent court battles over ppl stealing ideas pre patent application.

Of course, once the idea is patented and becomes intellectual property, anyone can look it up on google patents.

It is then a matter of patent enforcement.

And that is actually becoming easier all the time in China.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
