I have. I read about it in TIME magazine like 2 years ago. It was about an American group hired by the Pentagon to catch those hackers and trace them (Titan Rain = the Chinese hacker group believed to be working for the Chinese government). Most of the hackers (routers to be more exact) were traced back to Guangzhou...
America has some of the best universities the world offers (cmon now, if foreign students are willing to pay 5x the tuition fee just to go to American junior colleges, how much do you think they're willing to pay to attend American univerisities?). Those univerisities train some of the best engineers in the world (the military even handed the control of the Lawrence Livermoore Nuclear Lab to the UCs in CA). I say the US should employ those hackers to do a little cyber spying for the US against China and various other hostile nations. America has flexed her miltary might for quite some time now, let's have her flex some brain cells.
