Report: China hacks more than 24 U.S. weapon systems

According to a report obtained by the Washington Post, Chinese hackers have breached more than two dozen American weapons systems that are essential to our national defense.

Among them are the F/A-18 fighter jet, the littoral combat ship, the aegis ballistic missile-defense system and the advanced patriot missile batteries..

U.S. Defense and other officials are downplaying the report, saying some of the information is dated, but if Chinese cyber spies are able to obtain some of America's most sensitive weapons technology, isn't a national security concern?

Outfront tonight: Colonel Cedric Leighton, former joint staff at the Pentagon and a national security analyst. Kevin Mandia is a top cyber-security expert who did a separate report this year on Chinese military hackers.
