Attorney General to announce hacking charges against Chinese army workers

May 19, 2014

FORTUNE -- Five individuals in the Chinese military could soon be in the digital doghouse with the U.S. Justice Department.

Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday is expected to charge the individuals for allegedly using government facilities to hack into U.S. company systems. The names of the companies weren't immediately available, but they apparently fall within the energy and manufacturing sectors.

More information is expected after Holder formally announces the charges later later today.
