The chairman of House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence blasted China on Tuesday  for what he called “pervasive Chinese economic cyberespionage. “  During a hearing on cybersecurity issues, the  chairman of the committee  Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) discussed his worries over widespread efforts by China to steal intellectual property from companies that could harm U.S. companies and bring widespread economic impacts.

Rogers referred to  the highly sophisticated hacking of Google and other companies in late 2009 that went undetected until January 2010.  The hacking of Google’s network was intended to gain access to the email accounts of human rights activists in China.
