    That's been happening for years with them, and, with the current aggression China has been showing as a country, it's even less shocking. Every country that is technologically capable of it does this, even countries that are friendly towards each other spy on each other. That's the whole point of intelligence, to stay a step or two ahead of the rest.

    Anyone who uses software that originates in China is being monitored every time they use the product. They want to find our weaknesses. Just kidding! :D

    I'm sure they all engage in intelligence efforts and maybe some attempt it in this league but I doubt many achieve this level of penetration.

    True. Some years ago, I bought a brand new name brand computer, sealed in its box, never opened, etc. Got it home and running, installed my usual security stuff and it picked up a keylogger 'I am (something) daddy.' The keylogger was verified and wasn't a false positive.

    This wasn't some malware zoo type site, this was a brand spanking new computer coming from probably the largest computer manufacturer in the world. Since then, I haven't bought another computer from that company. I did recently purchase one of their laserjet printers.
