    THE WIKILEAKS LEAKS have shown that Chinese security firms with ties to the Chinese military hired the hacker group responsible for the original Blaster worm. According to the Guardian US diplomats have also discovered that the security firms have access to the source code of Microsoft Windows to assist them breaking it.

    In a US State Department daily security briefing of June 29, 2009, Topsec of Beijing had employed Lin Yong, aka "Lion," the hacker served as a senior security service engineer to "manage security service and training".

    Topsec, China's largest security vendor, provides training and support service for the People's Liberation Army.
