1) The title of this article suggests that authorities are sure the hack of one of the US’s biggest health care insurers came from China, yet the article also notes that U.S. servers were used. How do hackers manage to take control of other people’s computers from around the world?

2) Why is China so active in hacking American companies? What is to be gained by the Chinese from U.S. healthcare information on you and me?
