Chinese hack US govt contractors' sites and airlines

A new report shows that Chinese hackers hacked US government contractors' sites and airlines more than 50 times from June 2012 to June 2013. 20 of these were "advanced persistent threats". The attacks were focused on systems dealing with troop movement and equipment. The report also noted that US government agencies did not communicate with each other about the attacks and that "contractors are only required to report network-level cyber-intrusions." You would think significant attacks would have been reported as they must have been at least network-level, wouldn't you? The Chinese government denies it.
