When I see "anonymous" in any gov. story about hacking, I start thinking it's anon when the gov. is on the reciving end of it.
What I find odd is that it is on a non-classified system yet they won't tell what it is/was. It leads me to think it was a classified or restricted system of some kind........ Or it could have been the "1st cloud" server....
BAHAHAHA! "omgs! It was China! And they were after the nukes man!!! THE FLIPPING NUKES!!!!"
I'm not saying that the DOD is the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree, but I think they would be smart enough to keep terminals that can initiate nuclear launch commands off of the network, or at least in an extremely isolated network.
It's pretty classic to accuse the Chinese and to go overboard with stating that it was a nuclear missile system that was hacked, but along with the statement, there goes your credibility.
