The suspected China-based hackers known as the "Comment Crew" were back at it again in June, a development likely to contribute to continued tensions between the U.S. and China over cyber-attacks. The security community has had the group under its watch for a number of years, but in February, its activity was exhaustively detailed in a report from computer security vendor Mandiant. Mandiant's report said a specific Chinese military unit called "61398" waged a seven-year hacking spree that compromised 141 organizations. The report added to other long-running research from security companies and organizations into suspected state-sponsored hacking. Mandiant Founder & CEO Kevin Mandia (L) and Mandiant CSO Richard Bejtlich (C) participate in the Reuters Cyber security Summit in Washington May 13, 2013.
