US concedes danger of cyber-attack

From the Financial Times:

George W. Bush has acknowledged that the US is vulnerable to cyber-attack and said he might raise the issue with Chinese President Hu Jintao when they meet in Sydney on Thursday.

The US president’s comments followed a report in the Financial Times that the Chinese People’s Liberation Army had allegedly hacked into the Pentagon’s computer network.

“I’m very aware that a lot of our systems are vulnerable to cyber-attack from a variety of places,” said Mr Bush, who is in Sydney for the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation (Apec) summit.
