Reports surfaced Monday that hackers for the Chinese government might be behind a recent cyberattack of the U.S. Postal Service, which compromised the data of more than 800,000 employees.
This comes just as President Obama arrived in Beijing for high-level talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
The hack, uncovered in mid-September, might have lasted more than seven months. It does not appear consumers' credit card information was revealed.
