Hacking the hackers

It’s probably impolite and childish of me, but my first reaction when I read about Chinese hackers breaking into US health care organizations was that this may be the poison pill that finally sends the Chinese off the rails. It will serve them right if they blindly copy the byzantine business processes of certain hospitals and health insurers and end up bankrupting the Chinese economy in the process.

Reading a little further into the piece I see they are mainly looking for secret information about novel drugs and devices, but business processes are also on the list.
