"Federal prosecutors have charged the owner of a Chinese aviation firm with trying to steal data about U.S. military aircraft by hacking into the computer networks of Boeing and other U.S. companies, according to a federal complaint unsealed in Los Angeles this week.

According to authorities, the individuals allegedly stole information on  Boeing’s C-17 transport plane. Evidence shows that the Chinese hackers obtained large amounts of data on dozens of  military projects.
