Yes I heard about this, seems they were most likely stationed out of China. However, they didn't get anything that was considered sensitive or classified, that's all kept in the Pentagon which is pretty much impossible to hack seeing as how their networks are not attached to the internet.

One wonders whether or not cyber attacks are grounds for war. They are essentially the equivalent  of traditional espionage and sabotages, and historically those are often grounds for conflict.
