    "1 Million" Chinese Spy on German Technology

    "1 Million" Chinese spy on German technology



    GERMANY is under attack from an increasing number of state-backed Chinese spying operations that are costing its economy tens of billions of euros a year, a leading German counterintelligence agent has said.

    Walter Opfermann, an expert on espionage protection in the office for
    counter-intelligence for the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, said China was stealing industrial secrets using an array of "polished methods" from conventional spies and phone-tapping to the internet

    Mr Opfermann said methods had become "extremely sophisticated" to the extent that China was now capable of "sabotaging whole chunks of infrastructure", such as Germany's power grid. "This poses a danger not just for Germany but for critical infrastructure worldwide," he said.

    Russia was also "top of the list" of states using internet spying techniques to garner German expertise, which "helps save billions on their own economic research and development".

    Russia had only "hundreds of thousands of agents", compared with China's 1 million, but it had "years more experience".
    The areas most under attack included car manufacturing, renewable energy, chemistry, communication, optics, X-ray technology, machinery and armaments. Information being gathered was related to not only research and development but also management techniques and marketing strategies.


    Picture used for illustration

    In 2007 the consultancy firm Corporate Trust estimated that about 20 per cent of German companies - mainly small and middle-sized ones - had been victims of industrial espionage.

    When you search google for "german companies" the second result after wikipedia is www.german-company-directory.com Which is purely interested in German companies in China.


    "Made in China"? Made of Western unemployment!

    and this is what happens when a society covers greed - with ideas of humanity to man. A fools game that must eventually require a strong leader to stop.

    I think most scientists, engineers and industrialists with their head screwed on right have known this for a long time.
    It used to be the Japanese that spied and copied from the West but now it's the Chinese.

    Asians may be smart but they simply lack the ingenuity and creativeness of us Westerners.
