A group of hackers in China breached the computer defenses of the US Chamber of Commerce and gained access to everything stored on its systems.

The break-in is one of the boldest known infiltrations in what has become a regular confrontation between US companies and Chinese hackers.

Shear, LLC, Aleksei Czeskis, Security and Privacy Research Lab with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, and Paul Rosenweig, Principle with Red Branch Consulting and a visiting fellow at Heritage, talk about this complex operation, which involved at least 300 internet addresses.
