At least you got it right here, it's PHISHING, the press is calling it hacking.
If the top US officials who are supposed to be security conscious are too stupid to tell they're being PHISHed, which puts the whole act of divulging data on the unwary user, how to they expect the average joe not to get phished?
Seems like this little episode will put some serious efforts into anti-phishing detection because it's not that hard and stupid the email vendors aren't doing more to alert users.
Maybe the Chinese did it, maybe they didn't, but stupidity and insufficient software safety guards divulged the passwords, not the Chinese.
