Chinese Spy Gets 2 Years
According to this article in USAToday, Xiaodong Sheldon Mang has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for stealing fighter-pilot training software and trying to sell it to the Chinese, Malaysian and Thai militaries.
Meng “misappropriated two defense articles … , at least six source code products which were also trade secrets, and more than one hundred materials and utilities” from Quantum. One product is “used to provide night vision simulation and is exclusively used in military applications for precision training and simulation applications,” the Justice Department said.
This is not only noteworthy for the fact that we caught a spy trying to sell U.S. intelligence to other countries, but as far as this blog is concerned, this is the first sentence handed down for a violation of the Economic Espionage Act of 1996.
