Google Hacks the Chinese Hackers Right Back

One of the cooler stories out the whole Google-China debacle is that Google hacked the hackers. It "began a secret counteroffensive," breaking into a computer in Taiwan, gathering evidence the attacks originated from mainland China, possibly orchestrated by the government.

Google's delta force found evidence that the hackers had attacked 33 other companies, like Adobe, and that the onslaught actually came from China, not Taiwan. More to the point, "much of the evidence, including the sophistication of the attacks, strongly suggested an operation run by Chinese government agencies, or at least approved by them." Unfortunately, Google can't prove the Chinese government's involvement 100 percent, which is why the Obama administration is pussy-footing around the issue.

Still, it's pretty awesome: If you hack Google, they will hack your ass right back.

For as long as we, the West in general, buy stuff from China, we'll never point fingers on them.
keep that in mind, they got huge money stocks and are buying gold and other values. when you screw with the Chinese you'd better be prepared for some serious counterattacks

The comments to that article are absolutely hilarious. At least from the ones that I've read so far.



In communist China, Google searches you!

I wasn't aware that Google had a Delta force.
Wouldn't it be by more of a G-Force?
