WASHINGTON (AP) -- Attorney General Eric Holder says Chinese military officials hacked into six U.S. nuclear power, metals and solar products industries.
Holder says the companies affected are Alcoa World Alumina, Westinghouse Electric Co., Allegheny Technologies, U.S. Steel Corp., United Steelworkers Union, and SolarWorld.
The charges contained in a federal indictment are the first U.S. cyber-espionage charges against state actors. The hackers are accused of stealing trade secrets and economic espionage.
