    A lot of the article comes off as guessing and what ifs.

    I am also curious how they confirmed it was China and not someone using Chinese nodes as a launch point. Just my two cents. China and Russia have become the cyber bogyman of the 21st century, or scapegoats, depending on how you look at it.

    Not saying state sponsored hacking isn't occurring believe me it is, though I tend to cringe when these kind of stories get published while an investigation is still going on and evidence/damage is still be confirmed or ruled out.
