Xinhua: Stay Alert for U.S. Offline Network Attacks

Xinhua recently published an article analyzing strategic changes in U.S. network-based warfare. According to the article, the key focus should be offline attack technologies that can implant data, via wireless signals, into enemy systems that are not connected to the Internet. It was reported that the U.S. Army obtained this strategic technology five years ago. There are three other strategic changes mentioned in the article: (1) New network warfare rules; (2) Distribution of offensive network attack weapons instead of defensive ones; (3) An upgrade of the network warfare command center to the top level in the Army’s ranking system.
