China Admits Existence of a Cyber-Warfare Team Called "Blue Army"

Interesting, but not surprising. '30 people'; come on, not a chance it is that small. We have entered a new era of war, one in which I suspect we will eventually see a separate "Cyber-Force" branch of the US military much the same way the air force became their own branch.

"China has admitted for the first time that it had poured tens of millions into the formation of a 30-strong commando unit of cyberwarriors called The Blue Army. The team is reportedly trained to improve the security of the country’s military forces and to protect the People’s Liberation Army from outside assault on its networks.

The Blue Army, believed to have already been in existence for two years, is currently under the Guangdong Military Command. Although supposedly established for defensive purposes, most governments across the globe fear that revelation is likely to confirm suspicions that cyber attacks on their systems do indeed originate from China.
