China is engaging in state-sponsored cyber espionage to collect intelligence about the US government's defense programs, said a Pentagon report issued Monday.

"China is using its computer network exploitation (CNE) capability to support intelligence collection against the US diplomatic, economic, and defense industrial base sectors that support US national defense programs," according to the report to Congress.
