Hackers infiltrate 6 oil companies via China servers

Ref: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-02-24/exxon-shell-bp-said-to-have-been-hacked-through-chinese-internet-servers.html

Bloomberg reports that Internet servers in China were used to access company confidential information from six oil companies
    Exxon Mobil Corp.,
    Royal Dutch Shell Plc
    BP Plc
    Marathon Oil Corp.
    Baker Hughes Inc

Surprisingly, none of these disclosed the attacks in filings with regulators. Is this truly not relevant to investors?
“Legal information, information on deals and financial information are all things that appear to be getting targeted,”
"In some of the cases, hackers had undetected access to company networks for more than a year"

Shoot! If I was an investor and I found out that confidential and competitive bid information was able to be leaked to competitors, I would certainly consider that relevant! Wouldn't you?
