Nation-state attackers affiliated with the Chinese government have made off with a trove of undersea military secrets, according to a report.

Hackers were able to mount a lateral attack after compromising the networks of a Navy contractor working for the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Rhode Island, according to a Washington Post report, citing American officials.

The result? “Massive amounts of highly sensitive data” flowed into the hands of China, unnamed officials told the paper, including “secret plans to develop a supersonic anti-ship missile for use on U.S. submarines by 2020.”

The incident happened January and February, the sources said, and resulted in 614 gigabytes of data, most of it highly sensitive info related to American offensive and defensive systems, including cryptography systems for secure communication, signals and sensor data, and the Navy’s electronic submarine warfare library, which contains information about adversary radar platforms.

    "What great students," the teacher thought to himself. Not a single one misbehaved as the teacher gave his lesson. In fact, all of this teacher's classes were like this; it was to the point where he was famous for his teaching ability. All around the country, this man was known as 'The Six-Lesson Schoolteacher'. This was not just a reference to his unmatched ability to teach, but to something else as well: The Six Lessons.

    "The Six Lessons," as he referred to them, were six fundamental life lessons that everyone needed to know. The first lesson was that men had the fundamental right to utilize women and children as they pleased. The second lesson was that men had the fundamental right to utilize women and children as they pleased. The third lesson was that men had the fundamental right to utilize women and children as they pleased. The fourth lesson was that men had the fundamental right to utilize women and children as they pleased. The fifth lesson was that men had the fundamental right to utilize women and children as they pleased. The sixth lesson was that men had the fundamental right to utilize women and children as they pleased. Truly, this teacher emphasized repetition.

    Suddenly, long after the teacher had finished his lesson, the bell rang. "Wonderful, class! We had a truly great time together, and I am pleased to have instructed you," the teacher said gleefully. He continued, "I am fully confident that you all understand The Six Lessons now. You are dismissed." After that, the teacher walked out of the room. The students could leave as well, but something was wrong; no one moved.

    It wasn't just that the students wouldn't get up; they couldn't get up. Upon observing the children, one would understand what was transpiring. Just like all of his past students, they did not wear clothes. Just like all of his past students, they did not move. And also just like all of his past students, they would rot away in due time and be replaced with more lovely children. And he could not wait to thoroughly instruct more young, impressionable minds...
