Google attack part of widespread spying effort


www.computerworld.com

IDG News Service - Google's decision Tuesday to risk walking away from the world's largest Internet market may have come as a shock, but security experts see it as the most public admission of a top IT problem for U.S. companies: ongoing corporate espionage originating from China.

It's a problem that the U.S. lawmakers have complained about loudly. In the corporate world, online attacks that appear to come from China have been an ongoing problem for years, but big companies haven't said much about this, eager to remain in the good graces of the world's powerhouse economy.

China has been at this for such a long time this isn't surprising to me. What is surprising is how the corporate world has kept silent over this issue despite having their secrets stollen. 33 of the top fortune 500 companies have had info stolen and alot of it was from the IT industry, no wonder they have finally made a complaint. Can't wait to hear China's excusses.

It seems the Google attack was done by the Chinese govt, who wanted to hack the email accounts of human rights activists who were against the govt
